A retired teacher twice jailed for historic sex assaults on boys has been sentenced for three further offences.

Christopher Robin Jarvis, 74, admitted three charges of gross indecency against a boy in the 1960s at Lewes Crown Court.

The victim was a pupil at St Peters Preparatory School in Seaford, where he was a teacher. It closed in 1982.

Jarvis, who is already in custody, was jailed for eight months for each offence to run concurrently.
