Ex-football coach Bob Higgins has been found guilty at Bournemouth Crown Court of 45 charges of indecent assault against teenage boys.

One of Higgins' victims - Billy Seymour - spoke openly about his abuse and the devastating impact it had on his life. His evidence - given in previous interviews - was shown in court and formed part of the case.

Before his death in a car crash at the start of the year he spoke exclusively to Emma Wilkinson and we can now reveal how he was groomed - and why he kept quiet for so long.
