A FORMER PE teacher from Belper who has admitted eight counts of sexually abusing a girl is due to learn his fate today.

Graham Hawkins previously pleaded guilty to eight charges of indecent assault on the child, who was aged under 16 at the time.

The 57-year-old, who worked at Withywood School in Bristol and now lives in Derbyshire is due to be sentenced at the city’s crown court on Thursday for the offences.

Five indecent assaults occurred in 1983 and three in 1984. Hawkins also worked as a teacher in Gibraltar for decades before moving back to the UK.
