How can this possibly be tried?
The gang rape of a teenager more than 40 years ago by members of a touring rugby team is being investigated by detectives.
The 17-year-old victim was subjected to multiple rapes by several men at a hotel in Plymouth in 1978. She has now made a direct appeal to two witnesses to name her attackers.
Devon and Cornwall Police said the men were thought to be part of a rugby club visiting Plymouth from South Wales.
The alleged offences took place on a Saturday in late January or early February in 1978 at the now closed Strathmore Hotel in Elliot Street.
Seriously, how could a trial on this take place?
