Manchester City to compensate victims of child sexual abuse

Manchester City are set to offer millions of pounds in compensation to victims of historical child sexual abuse.

A club redress scheme will see survivors of the most serious crimes receive six figure sums in damages.

Those abused will also receive a personal apology from a senior club official.

City knows of the potential claimants to their compensation fund but they are braced for more cases.

Last year, former youth coach Barry Bennell was convicted of 43 charges relating to 12 former junior players between 1979 and 1990 during his time working for city and Crewe Alexandra.
