British Airways faces legal action over child sex abuses

'BA’s first officer, Simon Wood, who is potentially Britain's most prolific child sex offender, committed suicide two days before he was due to appear in a London court in August over charges of sexual assault of children while on overseas missions for BA over 15 years.

Families of the victims blame BA for failing to protect their children from Mr Wood, who had a history of child abuse but no record.

“The prosecution say that Mr Wood was a deeply depraved and corrupt individual who had used his ability to fly to other parts of the world to commit sexual offences against children,” said prosecutor Peter Zinner.'
