Jack Jones admits Southampton children's home sex offences

A man has admitted a series of child sex offences at a Southampton children's home in the 1980s and 90s.

Jack Jones, 56, of Goose Lane, York pleaded guilty to 14 counts - including indecent assault on a male and indecency with a child - at a hearing at Southampton Crown Court.

Police said the offences took place at the former Thorold Road children's home which closed in 2009.

Jones is due to be sentenced later in the year.
