Marc Roy Norry

A former Radio Merseyside presenter will appear in court next week to face charges of historical sexual abuse against two boys.

DJ Marc Roy Norry, 54 – who worked at the Paradise Street headquarters of BBC Radio Merseyside from January 1981 to September 1987 – is among six men who will be brought before magistrates in North Wales next week.

Norry, 54, from Connah’s Quay and a 62-year-old man from Wrexham, who has not been named, will appear at Mold Magistrates Court on June 12.

The serious sexual offences were alleged to have taken place against two boys aged younger than 16, between 1981 and 1986, in Wrexham.

Norry is charged with six serious sexual offences including four counts of indecent assault.

During his stint at Radio Merseyside, where he worked for close to seven years, he presented the Sunday night general music show 10pm to midnight and ‘It’s Saturday’ on Saturday mornings from 7am to 10am.

According to his CV, Norry also did numerous swing shifts and he stood in during holiday periods including drive time, mid morning, breakfast and ‘hold your plums’.

He also participated in numerous live outside broadcasts from the Lord Mayor’s Parade to the big county shows to occasional radio car work.

Norry started his career on the original Radio Deeside, which was set up as one of a series of community stations by the BBC in 1978, prior to the launch of BBC Wales.

He played a part in the return of a community radio station in Deeside last year.
