Roy Harper Charged With Alleged Child Sexual Abuse

(Classic Rock) Roy Harper has been charged with sexually abusing a girl from the age of 12. The progressive folk musician, 72, will appear in Hereford Magistrates' Court on Monday in relation to nine counts of sexual assault, which are alleged to have taken place between 1975 and 1977.

The incidents are said to have taken place in Herefordshire and relate to one victim. Harper, who is based in Ireland, is probably best known for his guest vocals on Pink Floyd's 1975 track Have A Cigar. He also worked with Led Zeppelin and is cited as an influence by the Who, Kate Bush and Jethro Tull, among others.

The musician was summonsed last month after he was voluntarily interviewed by police in February. A brief statement was posted on his Facebook page. Read it here.
