Former PE teacher and Olympic coach Darrell Bunn has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in the 1980s.

He admitted nine charges of indecent assault and two of child abduction at Birmingham Crown Court, which occurred during his career as a teacher at a Birmingham school.

Bunn was given a two-year suspended sentence due to his ill health. The 64-year-old has a progressive and ultimately incurable form of cancer.

The historic offences against a 15-year-old girl took place in 1988 and 1989, when Bunn was in his late 30s, and continued in a two-year consensual relationship.

The victim, now 41, is reported to have confided in friends about the relationship ten years ago, and contacted the police in July 2013.
