A swimming instructor has been convicted of sexually touching young girls during lessons at a London pool. Emmanuel Brown, of Forest Gate, was found guilty at Wood Green Crown Court on December 5 of three counts of sexual assault by touching on the children, all of whom were under the age of 13.

He will be sentenced at the same venue on February 27, 2023.

The court was told Brown ran swimming lessons at the Northumberland Park swimming pool, N17.

He had been a swimming instructor since 1995. In June and July 2020, two separate complaints were lodged by girls who were taught by Brown.

The abuse of two of the girls occurred between 2010 and 2012, while the third victim was abused in 2019. Detective Constable Andri Andreou of the North Area Command Unit said: "I have no doubt that Emmanuel Brown is a dangerous sexual predator who poses a significant risk to young children.

"Brown used his position of trust to carry out sustained sexual assaults on these three girls - his behaviour is utterly deplorable."

Given the offending took place over a ten-year prior, it was probable there were other victims, Mr Andreou warned.

"My sincere gratitude goes out to the victims and their families who have been so brave as to come forward - their resilience and commitment throughout the investigation made Brown's conviction possible.

"I can only hope that this result goes some way to helping those victims with a form of closure and justice."

Mr Andreou concluded: "I hope this case serves to offer some reassurance to the public that crimes of this nature will be investigated by a team of committed and dedicated officers, and provides confidence for victims of abuse to speak out against their abusers.

"Anyone who has been a victim of sexual abuse or have information about offending of this nature, please contact police on 101. In an emergency dial 999.
