Breaking News…Coach at centre of abuse scandal found unconscious.

Ex-youth football coach Barry Bennell, who is at the centre of a sex abuse scandal, has been taken to hospital after being found unconscious.

The convicted sex offender was found at an address in Knebworth Park, Stevenage on Friday, Thames Valley Police said.

The force said it was called to a “fear for welfare” incident and the 62-year-old was still in hospital.

Bennell was named last week by several former footballers who alleged they were abused as children.

Four police forces are now investigating claims of historical abuse.

Former Crewe player Andy Woodward was the first to speak out about the abuse he said he suffered at the hands of Bennell.
