Name suppression lapsed for Andrew Alan Williams and new charges laid by police bring the number of complainants - including an 8-year-old girl - to three. Prosecutors say there's a "potential fourth" complainant and supported NZME application to photograph Williams in case others recognise him.

A female equestrian and her boyfriend have been accused of grooming young girls for sex - and recording some of the alleged rapes and indecent assaults on camera.

Laken Maree Rose, 29, and Andrew Alan Williams, 52, were arrested a fortnight ago and jointly charged with indecent assault, unlawful sexual connection and the rape of an 8-year-old girl.

The alleged sex crimes happened at a Tauranga camping ground earlier this year.

The couple, who live in Cambridge, are well-known in equestrian circles and pleaded not guilty to the original charges.
