A former teacher has admitted sexually assaulting pupils at a private school in the 1980s.

Simon Harris, 55, pleaded guilty at Birmingham Crown Court to indecent assaults on three boys aged between 13 and 14.

The assaults took place while he was employed at Shebbear College in Devon.

Mr Harris, from Pudleston, Herefordshire, has denied a further 27 sexual offences involving boys in Kenya.

He is due to stand trial over these charges, which include allegations of rape on victims as young as seven, from Tuesday.
