Rock singer Roy Harper facing child sex charges
Veteran folk and rock performer Roy Harper is facing charges in relation to a series of historic sex offences against an under-age girl.
The singer-songwriter, who has performed with Pink Floyd and influenced rock band Led Zeppelin, has been summonsed to appear at Hereford Magistrates' Court on Monday, West Mercia Police said.
The 72-year-old, of Rossmore, Clonakilty, Co Cork, in the Republic of Ireland, is facing nine sexual offences charges in total.
The summons was issued to the musician on October 16, after he was voluntarily interviewed by police at Heathrow Airport on February 22.
The prolific performer has produced more than 30 albums during his career, and continues to tour.
