A former church minister and BBC Wales presenter has appeared in court charged with sexual offences against children and adults spanning 30 years.

Ben Thomas, 44, from Flintshire, was charged with 40 offences, including indecent assaults against children and adults, and voyeurism.

The offences are said to have happened in north Wales, Shropshire, London, and Romania.

He appeared before Llandudno Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

He is next due to appear at Mold Crown Court on 17 July.

The offences allegedly took place between 1990 and last year.

Mr Thomas worked for BBC Wales as a reporter and a presenter on Ffeil, the Welsh language news programme for young people, and on Wales Today.

He left the BBC in 2005 to preach on the streets of London, before returning to Wales in 2008 as pastor of the Criccieth Family Church in Gwynedd. He left his post last year.
