Norfolk police appeal for more Mike Souter victims

POLICE in Norfolk have reiterated a plea for more victims of disgraced Costa del Sol journalist Mike Souter to come forward.

This comes after a British man waived his right to anonymity to accuse the former BBC Norfolk DJ of abusing him for more than a year when he was just 16.

Souter, 60, who worked as a travel journalist for the Sur in English, was sentenced to 22 years in prison in October last year.

He was found guilty of 19 counts of historic child sex abuse against seven different boys aged between 11 and 16, between 1979 and 1999.

Now living in Wales, Jim Belcher, 51, told the Eastern Daily Press he is sure there are other victims in Norfolk who have not yet spoken about being abused by Souter.

He said: “If I can help just one other person to come forward and get on with their lives then that is brilliant.”
