A MAN in his 60s has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman.

The guilty verdict on Geoffrey George Beetlestone, 63, of Market Street, Watchet, followed a trial at Taunton Magistrates' Court yesterday (Wednesday).

He had denied a charge of sexually touching a woman aged over 16 without her consent in Watchet in October 2018.

Beetlestone was remanded on unconditional bail by the court for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

He was ordered to attend the court on October 12.
