Lord Janner appears in court over child sex abuse charges

Lord Janner has appeared in court for the first time over historical child sex abuse charges. The BBC reported that 87 year old Janner, who has dementia, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court for less than a minute.

Lord Janner faces 22 charges spanning the 1960s to the 1980s and was told his case would be sent to crown court.

The appearance, during which Lord Janner confirmed his name, was brief, with the charges read out after he left and the full hearing taking less than 12 minutes.
