Ted Hankey: Former double world darts champion charged with sexual assault

Former double world darts champion Ted Hankey has been charged with sexual assault.

Cheshire Police said the charge related to an alleged assault of a woman in the county in September 2021.

A police spokesman said: “The Crown Prosecution Service has authorised Cheshire Constabulary to charge Edward Hankey with the sexual assault of a woman.

“The CPS made the decision to charge the 54-year-old after reviewing a file of evidence from Cheshire Constabulary.”

Hankey, of Berry Hill, Stoke-on-Trent, has been released on bail and will appear at Warrington Magistrates’ Court on 6 April.

The darts player, whose nickname is “The Count”, won the BDO championship in 2000 and 2009 but his career faded away in recent years.

His last appearance in the now-defunct tournament was 2016, and in December 2021 he announced he was withdrawing from the World Seniors Darts Championship, held in February.
