A former Norfolk headteacher has been charged with a further number of sexual offences against four pupils at an independent school over three decades ago.

David William Tuohy, 82, of White House Road, Oxford, has been charged with 14 indecent assaults.

The charges relate to four different males aged under 16 - seven counts for one boy, three for the second boy and two each for the final two boys respectively.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between the mid-1970s and the early 1980s at Eccles Hall School, now known as the New Eccles Hall School, at Quidenham near Attleborough.

Tuohy was bailed to appear at Norwich Magistrates’ Court on August 29.

Tuohy was previously charged with four counts of sexual assault and four counts of buggery.

Those charges related to an alleged male victim under the age of 13 in the mid-1970s.

Tuohy pleaded not guilty to these charges at a plea and case management hearing on July 23.

He is due to stand trial at the end of November 2014.
