Ten UK schoolboy musicians receive compensation for sex abuse

Ten men who played in the Stowmarket Schools Concert Band between 1964 and 1984 are to share £210,000 in compensation from the local authority. The band was founded and directed by a teacher, Derek Cable, who was jailed for paedophile offences in 2003.

    Glad they will get some compensation. I don’t think that money can ever repair or mend such damage. It is amazingly sad that these men had to endure this kind of abuse.

  2. Surely there are ways to protect children from this hideous abuse in this day and age. Cameras in classrooms are a good start, especially in private lessons. Child-fiddler’s are the lowest of the low and should be treated accordingly.
