David Lowe, an ex-teacher at a Catholic public school was found guilty of historic sexual assaults on young boys in his care, including a choir boy who sang at his wedding.

English and music teacher at Westminster Cathedral Choir School, was convicted on Monday of abusing six boys under the age of 14 during the 1970s and 1980s.

The 61-year-old was also found guilty of indecently assaulting four boys during his time at Ampleforth College in Yorkshire.

A jury at Southwark Crown Court took nine-and-a-half hours to reach a guilty verdict of Lowe on 15 counts of indecent assault against 10 boys during 1978 – 1984.

The court heard evidence of how Lowe indecently assaulted some of the young boys in Westminster as they lay sleeping in communal dormitories.
