An Irish Catholic priest sedated a schoolboy before sexually assaulting him at a church, a court has heard.

Canon Mortimer Stanley, 84, is accused of 19 counts of indecent assault over four decades while he was working at St Vincent de Paul Church in Norden, Greater Manchester.

A jury at Minshull Street Crown Court heard on Thursday how one of the alleged victims, who was nine at the time, claimed Stanley, who was born in Limerick, came up behind him while he was getting changed.

He allegedly covered his mouth and nose with a handkerchief soaked in a ‘chloroform-type’ substance, Manchester Evening News reports.
