A second woman has told a jury she was sexually abused when she was a child by David Boswell, a former mayor of Pembroke.

She said she was aged six or seven when Boswell touched her sexually before going on to rape her.

Pembrokeshire County Councillor Boswell, aged 57, of Bush Street, Pembroke Dock, is on trial at Swansea crown court accused of seven offences of indecent assault and one rape. He denies all the charges.

The jury heard today (Tuesday) from the second woman.

"I remember staring and seeing him standing there.

"I pretended to be asleep.

"I didn't do or say anything, which I should have.

"I felt squashed, I felt suffocated," she added. "I kept my eyes closed for most of it."

Earlier today the jury heard more evidence from the first complainant, who said that years after the abuse she suffered from she made entries in a diary about it.

The jury were told she wrote: "I just can't stop thinking about something in the past. It keeps going around in my head. I didn't scream, I was just too scared."

Cross examined by Boswell's barrister, Jim Davis, she denied making up her complaints.

She said she confided in a counsellor and made an anonymous call to Crimestoppers before making a formal complaint to the police.

The trial continues.
