A FORMER Winchester pub landlord is due to face more sexual assault charges in the new year, a court heard.

Jason Colbourne, 55, who ran The Cricketers Inn at Easton Lane, Easton, was arrested on October 4 over alleged offences involving four females.

He was arrested after the incidents, between April and September, were reported to the police.

Winchester Crown Court heard, on December 8, that more alleged victims had come forward.

Colbourne will appear at Basingstoke Magistrates Court on January 2 for the new charges. 

He will then be due at Winchester Crown Court on January 22 for a plea and trial preparation. 

Colbourne's bail conditions mean he must live at a property in Swaythling, Southampton, and be electronically tagged not to go to Easton.

Colbourne was removed as The Cricketers Inn licensee the day after he was arrested.
