Operation Yewtree 'helped victims to report David Lowe'

The victims of a teacher who has been jailed for 10 years for sexually abusing boys were encouraged to come forward after publicity surrounding Operation Yewtree, the police have said.

Southwark Crown Court heard David Lowe - who is now retired - took advantage of boys aged between eight and 13 at Westminster Cathedral Choir School and Ampleforth College in North Yorkshire.

Judge Martin Beddoe told Lowe he took advantage of "vulnerable" boys.
