Former soccer coach Barry Bennell has been charged with child sex offences, the UK's Crown Prosecution Service said.

The 62-year-old is accused of eight offences of sexual assault against a boy under the age of 14.

On September 27, the CPS received a file of evidence from Cheshire Police relating to allegations of non-recent child sexual abuse involving Bennell.

The offences are alleged to have been committed between 1981 and 1985.

Bennell is due to appear at South Cheshire Magistrates' Court on December 14.
