Ex-vicar admits sex attacks

Have your say

A FORMER vicar has appeared in court to admit a series of sex attacks on a girl at a Sheffield church 26 years ago.

John Yallop, aged 65, from Blackburn, Lancashire, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court and pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting the teenager.

At the time of the incidents in 1987, Yallop was vicar at a church in Ellesmere, Burngreave.

He will be sentenced in April.
