Football Coach Bennell Unconcious In Herts
Paedophile football coach Barry Bennell has been taken to hospital after he was found unconscious a hotel near Stevenage.
Bennell, 62, had been evicted from his council bungalow in Milton Keynes on Thursday after news of the young footballer sex abuse scandal broke.
The former Crewe youth coach has served three sentences for abusing boys.
A Thames Valley Police spokesman said:
"Police officers attended an address in Knebworth Park, Stevenage just before 11pm on Friday in connection with a fear for welfare incident.
A 62 year-old man was located and was taken to hospital in order to receive medical treatment, where he remains."
A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service confirmed they were called at 10.50pm on Friday.
"We got a report of an unconscious man at Knebworth Park in Stevenage. We sent an ambulance crew who were on the scene within eight minutes."
Bennell was taken to hospital, where he is receiving treatment.
Both robberies happened within 20 minutes of each other on Wednesday night.
