Ex-football coach guilty of sex abuse

Ex-football coach Barry Bennell has been found guilty at Liverpool Crown Court of multiple sex offences against boys in the 1980s.

Bennell, 64, has been convicted of more than 30 charges including indecent assault and serious sexual assaults against boys aged eight to 15.

He had denied 48 offences.

The jury of five men and six women was sent out on Thursday and is currently delivering verdicts but was unable to reach decisions on a number of counts.

During the trial prosecutors said Bennell was a “predatory and determined paedophile” who molested young boys on an “industrial scale”.
