Nigel Evans urges review of historical sex assault cases

The power of the Crown Prosecution Service to pursue historical allegations of sexual assault should be investigated, MP Nigel Evans has said four days after his own acquittal.

Mr Evans, who was cleared of rape and sexual assault charges, wants the Home Affairs Select Committee to look into a number of possible changes to the system.

They include giving anonymity to defendants in sexual offence cases and allowing them to claim back legal costs after acquittal.

Mr Evans spoke to Oliver Hides on BBC Radio Wales.
