A former headteacher who was jailed for 21 years for sexually abusing schoolboys in Norfolk and Suffolk has died.

Derek Slade, who was 66, was convicted in 2010 of sexually abusing and hitting 12 boys, aged between eight and 13, while at private schools in Wicklewood in Norfolk and Great Finborough in Suffolk.

A Prison Service spokesman said Slade, who was in prison in Norwich, died yesterday afternoon "at an outside hospital".
