A PRIEST who sexually abused 10 male pupils has had his jail term cut by one year in London's Criminal Appeal Court.

Gregory Peter Carroll, 66, who had taught at Ampleforth College, near York, before working in Workington, was jailed for four years at York Crown Court last September.

Carroll, ordained a Catholic priest in 1969, had denied four indecent assaults and three linked offences of indecency with a child - those charges relating to three boys aged under 14.

He also admitted indecently assaulting seven other unidentified boys, who were under 15.
