Disgraced headteacher who preyed on young boys jailed

By Tom Wilkinson

There could be more victims of a "dirty pervert" headteacher who has been jailed having underage sex with two boys in the 1980s, police have said.

Disgraced Anne Lakey (55), from Stanley, County Durham, had won national acclaim for improving schools but her successful career hid a sordid past.

She took the virginity of two boys - one aged 13-14 and another aged 15 - when she was in her late 20s, working as a history and RE teacher in Sunderland.

Judge Howard Crowson jailed her for eight years at Teesside Crown Court for 13 counts of indecent assault.

She mouthed "I love you" to her father, husband David and daughter who were in the public gallery as she was led away.
