Football sex abuse claims: I would never have come forward if it wasn't for Andy

Ex-footballers who claim to have been abused by former Crewe Alexandra coach Barry Bennell say they came forward because of the actions of former player, Andy Woodward.

Mr Woodward spoke out last week about his experiences at the hands of Barry Bennell, who worked as a youth football scout and coach, and was jailed in 1998 for nine years and also served a four-year sentence in the United States.
