Karate club members yesterday gave evidence in the Oxford Crown Court trial of their instructor who denies sexually abusing teenage girls.

Darren Lymer, of Anson Close, Marcham, near Abingdon, is accused of engaging in sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl in January last year and sexually assaulting a 17-year-old in 2011.

The jury yesterday heard from four club members who spoke about the club, venue, and Lymer. The trial continues.
