A headteacher carried out sickening sexual attacks against young girls. Neil Foden, 66, was found guilty of 19 of 20 charges against five young girls after a three-week trial at Mold Crown Court.

Foden, who worked at a school in north Wales, was slammed as an "arrogant and controlling man" by the judge, who said his excuses for his behaviour "beggared belief." He was convicted of sexual activity with a child, using or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, attempting to arrange or incite sexual activity with a child by penetration, engaging in sexual communication with a child, two counts of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust and possession of an indecent photograph of a child, North Wales Live reported.

Foden's offending came to light in September 2023 when the first victim made disclosures. As part of the investigation another four victims were identified, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

The evidence presented included the victims accounts. Those accounts were corroborated by the evidence obtained by the police in the form of mobile devices, computers seized, forensic evidence and financial enquiries.
