Trial of man accused of sex attacks to start
The trial of a man accused of being one of Britain's most prolific sex attackers begins today.
Former minicab driver Delroy Grant, 53, is due to face a jury for a trial expected to last around three weeks.
He is charged with a string of burglaries and sex attacks on elderly victims across south London over 17 years.
The offences took place in Warlingham, Shirley, Beckenham, Bromley, Addiscombe, Orpington and West Dulwich.
Grant, of Brockley Mews, Honor Oak, was arrested after his car was stopped by police in November 2009.
He was interviewed by a team of Scotland Yard detectives hunting a criminal dubbed the Night Stalker.
A jury is due to be sworn in by trial judge Peter Rook QC but the case is not expected to start until Thursday at Woolwich Crown Court.
Jonathan Laidlaw QC will open the prosecution, with Courtenay Griffiths QC defending.
Grant is in custody at Belmarsh Prison.
