Have your say

A former Cunard cruise ship worker has been charged with a sex attack on a child.

Paul Trotter, 34, is accused of possessing indecent images of children and sexual assault of a child aged under 13 between December 20, 2010 and January 5, 2011.

Wiltshire Police said the assault was alleged to have been committed while Trotter was working for Cunard as a supervisor for a children’s activity area.

Trotter, from Pontefract, faced North West Wiltshire Magistrates’ Court in Chippenham yesterday and was remanded in custody.

He is now due to appear before Swindon Magistrates by video link on Thursday.

Trotter, a former Cunard employee, was initially arrested on suspicion of making, possessing and distributing indecent images on August 12 last year.
