Ex-St Paul’s head of music is charged with indecency

Malcolm Archer, 66, has been summonsed on one count of indecent assault and one of gross indecency. The alleged incidents took place in the 1970s.

Archer was director of music at St Paul’s Cathedral, 2004-2007, and a respected composer of some 200 published works.

He was director of chapel music at Winchester College from 2007 until his retirement this year.
