From Checkpoint, 5:22 pm on 3 September 2019

A jury has heard there was "excessive drinking" at the Young Labour summer camp on the night four teenagers claim they were assaulted.

A 21-year-old, who has interim name suppression, is on trial at the Auckland District Court, accused of indecently assaulting the teenagers at the camp near Waihi.

He has denied touching the genitals of two men, kissing and licking a woman on her neck and face and groping another woman's breast and bottom.

RNZ's Katie Scotcher is following the trial and filed this report.
