Michael Souter

A former BBC presenter dubbed a "predatory paedophile" has been jailed for 22 years after being convicted of sexually abusing seven boys over two decades.

Ex-BBC Norfolk and former Radio Clyde broadcaster Michael Souter was found guilty of 26 offences including indecent assault, indecency with a child, serious sexual offences, and seven counts of possessing indecent images of children at a trial which finished earlier this month.

He was sentenced at Norwich Crown Court today.

Norfolk Police said the 60-year-old, of Low Bungay Road, Loddon, Norfolk, was responsible for "one of the worst cases of prolonged child abuse" officers had dealt with.
