British soap star Michael Le Vell has been charged with a string of child sex offenses.
The Coronation Street veteran, real name Michael Turner, has been charged with 19 offenses including “raping a child, indecently assaulting a child and sexual activity with a child”.
A statement from a Greater Manchester Police spokesman reads: “The charges… relate to offenses against a child between 2001 and 2010.”
Le Vell, 47, will appear before magistrates in Manchester, England on 27 February.
The actor was questioned by cops on suspicion of an offense involving a young girl in 2011, but the investigation was dropped last year.
