The charges related to the alleged indecent and sexual and assault of two girls – when they were aged 15-16 – on a number of occasions in the mid-1970s while they were under his authority as a swimming coach.

As a result of ongoing inquiries, the former coach was today charged at court with an additional seven counts of carnal knowledge teacher of girl aged 10-17 years and a further four counts of indecent assault of female.
