Francis Wheen: 'None of us thought to report Charles Napier'

Former teacher Charles Napier has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for sexually abusing 23 boys between 1967 and 1983.

He admitted 30 indecent assault charges and one offence of indecency towards a child.

Writer and broadcaster Francis Wheen, who was one of those molested by Napier, said he had abused his position "wholesale".

He told the BBC's Tom Symonds: "He started by offering us biscuits and fizzy drinks... and it worked. Not one of us thought to report him."
