Former Bedfordshire scout suspected of further crimes

Police believe Robert Major, 63, from Bedfordshire committed a large number of sexual abuse offences between 1977 and 2001.

The former scout leader from Leighton Buzzard was jailed for 14 years on Wednesday for sexually assaulting a father, his son and his cousin when they were children.

He was found guilty of 12 charges of indecent assault, four indecency charges and one of a serious sexual assault.

Detectives are appealing for people who may have been affected by his other crimes to come forward.
