Ex-BBC Radio Norfolk DJ Souter jailed for 22 years

Former BBC Radio Norfolk presenter Michael Souter has been jailed for 22 years for historic sex attacks on boys.

The 60-year-old, who worked at the station in the 1980s, used his status to meet, groom and abuse young boys over a 20-year-period, Norwich Crown Court heard.

Judge Mark Lucraft told Souter, from Loddon, Norfolk, that he had used "pathetic attempts to blame the victims and others" during his trial earlier this month.

Mette Ohrvik, of the Sue Lambert Trust, which supports people who have been sexually abused, praised the bravery of the witnesses.
