Priest accused of historic sexual abuse allegations

A Catholic priest has been charged with a string of sex offences dating back 30 years.

Canon Mortimer Stanley returned to Greater Manchester from his home in Ireland to face the allegations at Bury Magistrates court today.

The Crown Prosecution Service authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Canon Stanley, 82, after complaints by former pupils at a Rochdale school.

He is accused of 17 charges of indecent assault on a girl under 14 between 1977 and 1988.

The allegations involve ten victims. All the alleged victims were pupils at St Vincent’s Primary School, which has been historically linked to the parish.
