Former Newcastle coach charged over historic sex abuse allegations

Former Newcastle coach George Ormond has been charged over historic sex abuse allegations.

Northumbria Police have charged former Newcastle youth team coach George Ormond with 29 counts of sexual offences between 1973 and 1988.

The 61-year-old, who lives in Newton Abbot, is due to appear before Newcastle Magistrates' Court on Friday, June 9.

In a statement, assistant chief constable Darren Best said: "We have had a dedicated team investigating allegations of non-recent child abuse within the sporting community since December last year.

"Our specially-trained officers have been supporting those who have taken the hugely brave step of speaking to us. Our investigations are continuing and 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."

Ormond is the first person to be charged as part of Operation Tide, the investigation Northumbria Police set up late last year to look into allegations of historic child sex abuse at football clubs in the north-east.
