Ex-BBC Norfolk Presenter Facing More Sex Offence Charges
A former BBC Radio Norfolk presenter awaiting trial for alleged sex offences against children is set to face further charges over the possession of indecent images
Michael Souter, 59, of Loddon, Norfolk, is charged with 18 sex offences against boys, as well as a charge each against a man and a woman. The allegations date back to between 1979 and 1999.
The former BBC Radio Norfolk presenter denied these offences at a previous hearing.
Today, at Norwich Crown Court, prosecutor Andrew Shaw applied to amend the indictment against Souter to add eight counts of making indecent images of children.
It comes after Souter's computer was examined by police.
Souter was not present as Judge Mark Lucraft granted the application but allowed his defence team time to consider the charges which are likely to be put formally at a later date.
The original charges, including serious sexual offences and indecent assault, relate to six boys, including two under the age of 14, four under 16, and a male and a female, both over 16.
Mr Souter worked for BBC Radio Norfolk from its launch in 1980 until the 1990s.
He is due to stand trial in September.
Police have confirmed that a man and a teenage boy have died after an incident at West Meadows in Ipswich yesterday afternoon.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year, an all-time record.
