A 91-year-old former teacher has denied committing a string of sexual offences against school pupils in Birmingham between 1957 and 1978.

Marcus Marcussen pleaded not guilty to 28 counts of indecent assault and two of indecency with a child during a pre-trial hearing at Birmingham Crown Court.

Marcussen is alleged to have carried out the offences against 14 boys while employed as a PE teacher at Ilmington Road comprehensive school in Weoley Castle.

The pensioner of Rochford, near Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire, was allowed to sit in the well of the court and leaned on a walking stick as he entered his pleas to the indictment.

Judge James Burbidge QC granted Marcussen conditional bail to appear for trial at the same court on January 19th.
