By Staff Reporter

A man and a woman from Co Down have been charged with a number of offences as part of a PSNI investigation into the sexual abuse of children.

Police conducted searches at a house in the Kinghill Avenue area of Newcastle on Tuesday and yesterday as part of their probe into the sexual abuse of youngsters.

Detectives have since charged a 58-year-old man and a 57-year-old woman with a series of offences.

They include gross indecency with a child, aiding and abetting gross indecency with a child, incitement to commit an act of gross indecency, and indecent assault.

The pair are also accused of making indecent images of children, possession of indecent images of children and distribution of indecent images of children.

They are expected to appear before Downpatrick Magistrates Court today.
