A former mayor of Pembroke sexually assaulted a nine-year-old girl, a jury heard today (Monday).

David "Dai" Boswell, aged 57, stepped down from his role after his arrest.

Boswell, of Bush Street, Pembroke Dock - claim the prosecution - went on to rape and sexually assault a second girl.

Boswell, an ex-soldier who was a parade Marshall for the Royal British Legion, denies all the charges against him.

The first girl - now a grown woman - told Swansea Crown court how she remembered Boswell entering the room.

"I was young and did not really understand what was happening. I thought it was disgusting.

"He was quite violent and I was scared of him."

She told police she did not make a complaint at the time because she had not appreciated what he had done to her.

Her evidence was played to the jury this afternoon while she listened via video link in an adjoining room.

Tomorrow, she will be questioned by Jim Davis, the barrister representing Boswell.

Boswell denies rape and indecent assault and the trial continues.
