On another note, Corrie has history when it comes to child abuse - Len Fairclough got done for it.
Len's little foible was for fingering young girls at Haslingden swimming baths. Staff at the baths became suspicious of his conduct and notified the Rozzers. At that stage they didn't have enough to arrest him so they sent in a pretty blonde policewoman in undercover ( swimming costume ).

She observed him helping young girls to swim by holding them aloft while they paddled and she also saw his fingers doing naughties under the water. The victims were under ten years old and back then the police didn't have video interview suites for juveniles, nor did they have specially trained officers. They didn't routinely take statements from children under ten either. The police charged him with indecent assault on a minor and the only prosecution witnesses were the policewoman and staff from the baths.

Len appeared before Manchester Crown Court where he was represented by a very expensive barrister. The trial was a farce with the defence discrediting the evidence of the policewoman who was relatively young in service. Fairclough was acquitted but was still banned from the baths and his career went to ratshit. Shortly before he died he admitted to a journalist that he had carried out the assaults and that he had had a penchant for young girls for many years. Whenever Len was seen out and about somebody would always end up singing, A finger of fudge is just enough to give the kids a treat.


Peter Dudley, who played Bert Tildsley was another one who liked to take a walk on the wild side. He was convicted of indecently exposing his todger to another male in some bogs in Didsbury. He was fined £200 but the producers stood by him and he kept his job. A few months later he tried it on with another male in some public toilets in Manchester but unfortunately for him the other male was a plainclothes policeman. Never come between a copper and his truncheon. He died of a stroke/ heart attack at 48 before his court case had been dealt with..

I was shopping in Quality Save ithe other day, when I bumped into the ' Legendary Entertainer ' Rolf Harris. I was so excited I said to him, " I remember you doing Two Little Boys in 1970."

He replied, " Fuck off, that was Gary Glitter."

Good point. Perhaps they may be related? It doesn't necessarily follow that because he was acquitted, the girl wasn't telling the truth.

There are no winners in this case , unfortunately.

The jury was sworn in today and the trial starts in full tomorrow. According to press reports, Rolf was playing the doddering old Antipodean codger to perfection. Any potential jurors with an Australian connection were excluded from taking part which suggests that there may be victims/complainants from way back when, before Rolf came to England.

Rolf wrote a grovelling apology to one of the victims parents which smells to me of an admission of guilt.

That other dirty bastard, Stuart Hall has got some front. He's charged with over twenty rapes of two young girls aged between ten and fourteen. He denies the rapes but admits to having consensual sex with both girls. How the hell does that work? He was forty three when the first offence took place and should have known better.

Veteran entertainer Rolf Harris saw his decades in the spotlight end in disgrace today as he was found guilty of a string of indecent assaults.

The 84-year-old, once a much-loved artist and musician, was unanimously convicted at Southwark Crown Court of 12 sex charges involving four women, most while they were underage.

His army of supporters, including suited security guards and representatives from PR giant Bell Pottinger who attended every day of the eight-week trial, could do nothing to change the verdict of the jury of six men and six women, who had deliberated for eight days.

Once seen by a UK audience as a national treasure, Harris had enjoyed years of success, netting him a multi-million pound fortune and the chance to paint the Queen.

But the downfall of an entertainer who was part of millions of British childhoods came today, as Harris became the biggest scalp claimed by detectives from high profile sex crime investigation Operation Yewtree, their second conviction after PR guru Max Clifford.

Dozens more alleged victims have come forward during the trial, including several in Australia, and Scotland Yard has been in touch with their counterparts in the Australian police, but it is not yet clear whether they are pursuing any investigation in Harris's home country.

The NSPCC said it has received 28 calls relating to Harris to date, involving 13 people who claim they fell prey to the performer.

Harris, who will be stripped of his BAFTA in the wake of his conviction and could face losing his prestigious CBE, remained impassive as the forewoman delivered the damning verdicts.

He was convicted of groping one woman when she was seven or eight, another two as teenagers and a catalogue of abuse against his daughter's then best friend.

During the trial, the court also heard from six other women who claim they were groped by Harris while abroad.

His daughter Bindi held hands with a fellow supporter, and wife Alwen and niece Jenny also watched from the public gallery as his fate was sealed.

Bindi was later seen crying in a waiting area outside the court, embracing her father's publicist.

The performer was released on bail until Friday when he will be sentenced and could face jail.

Mr Justice Sweeney warned the octogenarian: "In reality given the conviction on all 12 counts it is inevitable that the type of sentence that is uppermost in the court's mind is a custodial sentence and he must understand that."

After the verdicts, Harris walked slowly away from the building, with an emotional Alwen and Bindi by his side.

The family was flanked by three security guards as they faced a throng of international media.

The former family favourite remained silent in the face of continuous questions, cutting a dejected and downbeat figure.

Detective Chief Inspector Mick Orchard said: "Rolf Harris has habitually denied any wrong doing, forcing his victims to recount their ordeal in public.

"He committed many offences in plain sight of people as he thought his celebrity status placed him above the law."

Jenny Hopkins, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor for the CPS in London, called Harris "a man acting without fear of the consequences".

She said: "Rolf Harris used his status and position as a world famous children's entertainer to sexually assault young girls over a period spanning 18 years."

Perhaps if he hadn't lied and pleaded guilty and therefore not put his victims through all the stress of the trial he would have been lined up for a lesser sentence than seems likely is coming his way?
There is only himself that knows the truth  for sure here but from where I'm stood Rolf's didgerido should be cut in half with one piece shoved up a back passage and the other piece placed in a protein inlet. Both should be suitably retained by an adhesive and he should then be asked to sing "Stairway To Heaven" to be considered for leniency in the time served. 
Perhaps Percy Plant can be the judge of the day on Friday with Little Jimmy as the Court Clerk? :like:

It has been reported that since the start of the Rolf Harris trial the police have received a further 28 complaints regarding his conduct, only 17 of which were committed in the UK.

There are no doubt 11 victims/complainants in Australia which the UK police have no jurisdiction over. One thing that came out today in court, which was quite interesting, was that the offences spanned the 60's, 70's and 80's.  Rolf is 84. The only real conclusion is that the dirty bastard has been at it for years. Expect more revelations after his sentencing on Friday.

In this context, has anyone got any information about a Peter Nightingale who was a teacher at Bolton School on Chorley New Road, and went on to become a physio at Bolton Wanderers? Did any of you come across him or know what happened to him after his time at BW (or why he left the club)?

Peter Nightingale used to run the schools programme, when they used to invite primary schools to send their best players, i went to the training sessions for about a year but didn't get signed up.

He always seemed ok to me , what have you heard about him?
