Teacher extradited from France accused of sex offences

A former teacher extradited from France has appeared in court charged with 24 sex offences against children in Norfolk in the 1970s.

Mervyn Rush, 67, arrived in the UK on Thursday and attended Norwich Crown Court earlier.

Mr Rush, formerly of Dorking, Surrey, was arrested in France under a European arrest warrant last May. He is also charged with breaching bail in 2000.

Mr Rush was remanded in custody and is due to return to the court on 14 June.
