Tony Brunskill, the former Eden Council chairman and businessman, has been jailed for a further four years after admitting sexually abusing a fourth victim. He admitted the further charges, committed between 1975 and 1981, when he worked at Rossall School in Fleetwood in Lancashire.

Brunskill is already serving a 10 year sentence for abusing three other schoolboys. Carlisle Crown Court heard he lavished the boy, who was aged between 11 and 13 years old, with gifts before abusing him.

In a statement, which was read out to the court, his victim described feeling 'trapped and disgusted' and said Brunskill was "like a spider, weaving his web of entrapment."

The 66 year old appeared in the dock from prison and stood with his head bowed as the judge told him he was 'deeply manipulative and had grossly abused his position of trust.'
