The NSPCC has launched a dedicated football hotline for potential victims of sexual abuse.
It follows a series of revelations from former players in the region. Ex England and Liverpool star Paul Stewart says he was abused by an unnamed coach during his time as a youth player in the 1980s.
Steve Walters says he was one of Barry Bennell's victims during his time at Crewe Alexandra. He is the second ex player from the club to waive his anonymity. The first was Andy Woodward.

The NSPCC hotline will be available 24 hours a day on 0800 023 2642.
