Two former members of staff at an East Yorkshire approved school have been found guilty of 35 counts of sexual abuse of boys in over two decades.
James Carragher, 75, the former principal of the now defunct St William's Children's Home in Market Weighton, was found guilty of 24 charges of sexual abuse by a jury at Leeds Crown Court. It is the third time he has been convicted of abusing boys in his care.
Anthony McCallen, 69, who was former chaplain at the home was found guilty on 11 counts of sexual abuse.
Both men will be sentenced in the new year.
The oldest horse race in the UK, the Kiplingcotes Derby will be held later today at Market Weighton.
With origins in the Sixteenth Century and firm records dating back to 1618, it is open to jockeys and horses of all ages
The course covers four miles, steep in places and often muddy.
The winner has to be in it for the glory - the way the prize money is allocated means that the runner-up, whose prize is made up of the entry fees on the day, often gets a bigger cash prize than the winner who receives a fixed sum of £50.
Three men are due to appear in court today to face a total of ninety two historic child sex offences against residents at an East Yorkshire childrens' home.
James Carragher and Michael Curran were employees at the St William's Childrens Home near Market Weighton. Anthony McCallen was a former chaplain, at the home. The charges, in respect of 20 complainants, date from 1970 to 1993.

An eleven-year-old girl from Market Weighton has won an award in Hollywood for her acting in an app. Francesca Turton plays two characters in the City of York's Hologram Tour app.
She won the Best Actor award in the Los Angeles-based Women’s Independent Film Festival. In the category for young film-makers, the international festival also named the film ‘Moving On’ as having the Best Cinematography and Best Editing too.
While her role in ‘Moving On’ was an imaginary friend, for the York Hologram Tour app, Francesca played two characters who appear as 3D holograms from contrasting sectors of Victorian society.
Humberside Police are warning motorists to avoid the Market Weighton bypass which has been fully closed.
It's also been reported that the air ambulance has landed near what is thought to be a two vehicle collision on the road.
Police say the vehicles involved are believed to be a red Mitsubishi Colt and a white Citroen Berlingo van.
An occupant of one of the involved vehicles has sustained injuries requiring urgent hospital treatment resulting in the need for attendance of the air ambulance.
12 months after the Supreme Court ordered that victims of sexual and physical abuse at a reform school in East Yorkshire should receive compensation - not a single penny has been paid to them.
Saint Williams in Market Weighton has long since closed, but the wrangle over who should be compensated goes on.
It means the man responsible for some of the abuse will be out of prison before the case is settled. Calendar's Jon Hill reports.
170 men who claim they were sexually and physically attacked as boys at a Catholic children's home in East Yorkshire, are to have their case heard in the highest court in the land.

People in the East Yorkshire village of Market Weighton say they'll fight plans for a housing development and a medical centre.
Proposals have been put forward to build the centre and 49 homes near a cul-de-sac on Northgate Vale.
But people who live there are concerned about the impact of traffic. They say their cul-de-sac would, in effect, become an access road and they claim up to two hundred cars an hour would use it. They say the road was never designed for heavy traffic.
