Ex-teacher admits two decades of child abuse

Sky News:-A retired teacher who abused children for decades both in the UK and abroad has admitted 45 sex offences in one of the worst cases to come to court.

Mark Frost, known as Andrew Tracey, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to a catalogue of abuse against nine children in Thailand between 2009 and 2012.

After the allegations emerged in Asia, two former pupils of a school in Worcestershire came forward claiming they too were sexually assaulted by the English teacher in the 1990s.

Frost, now 70, had sex with one of the boys in a school store room, at his home where he lived with his adopted son, and in a car park in Woking.

He admitted charges relating to the historical abuse, although one of the victims died before he was brought to account.

His crimes included multiple rapes, indecent assault, inciting children to engage in sexual activity and making indecent images.

Prosecutor Ruona Iguyovwe said: “Sentence is obviously a matter for the courts but we would rank it as one of the most serious ones we have come across.”

Frost was at the centre of a complex international investigation involving the National Crime Agency and authorities in Canada, Thailand, the Netherlands and Spain
