Lord Janner must appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in person for a hearing over a series of child abuse charges he faces, chief magistrate Howard Riddle has ruled.

The former MP – who denies all 22 allegations – had not appeared at the first hearing in his trial, with his lawyer saying he was “unfit” to appear due to his dementia.

The hearing comes after the Crown Prosecution Service reversed a decision not to prosecute the 86-year-old because of the illness.
