One of Bennell's victims approached the dock after reading an impact statement to the court and said "Barry. Barry. Why?"
He was stopped from getting close to the dock by a court usher and asked to return to his seat by Recorder of Liverpool, Judge Clement Goldstone QC.
Bennell stared ahead at the judge with his arms folded as sentencing began but he looked downwards when the victim statements were read out - some by the complainants from the witness box and some by prosecutor Nicholas Johnson QC.
One victim who read a statement to the court said:
Not a day goes by without thinking about the abuse I received. I was just a child."
