Former Newcastle United youth coach George Ormond has been charged with 29 sex offences, police have said.

The 61-year-old, of Newton Abbot, Devon, is alleged to have committed the offences between 1973 and 1998.

He is due to appear before Newcastle Magistrates’ Court on 9 June, Northumbria Police said.

The charges followed an investigation into “non-recent child sexual abuse in the sporting community”, the force added.

Assistant Chief Constable Darren Best said its investigations were continuing.

He added: “We urge anyone who may have been a victim of abuse or has any information about suspected abuse within any sporting community to come forward and report it to us.”
