A former youth football coach has been jailed for 24 years for abusing young players.
Bob Higgins sexually touched and groped 24 victims, most of them trainees at Southampton FC and Peterborough United.
In May, Higgins was found guilty at his retrial of 45 counts of indecent assault between 1971 and 1996. He was convicted of another count last year.
Victims told Winchester Crown Court of suicidal thoughts and relationship problems later in life.
