A man aged 62 has been convicted of indecently assaulting two young dance pupils more than three decades ago.

Paul Marsden, of Daisy Hill Back Lane, Bradford, was found guilty of two offences involving a child in her early teens and a single count against a girl aged 16 or 17.

He was cleared by the jury at Bradford Crown Court yesterday of attempted rape and four further allegations of indecently assaulting the younger girl.

The case was adjourned until December 14 for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

Marsden’s bail was entended until the hearing.
