    A former teacher at Nick Clegg’s old prep school is believed to have killed himself by jumping in front of a train two days before he was due to be sentenced for sex crimes on pupils.

    Police said a body believed to be that of Hugh Henry, 82, was struck by a train in Buckinghamshire on Tuesday. He was found dead just 36 hours before he was due to be sentenced for sex crimes.

    Henry, who carried out the abuse at Caldicott Preparatory School in Farnham Royal, was due to be sentenced with ex-headmaster Peter Wright today.

    Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is among the former pupils of the school.

    A British Transport Police spokeswoman said: "BTP officers were called to the line close to Amersham London Underground (LU) station on Tuesday, 4 February after a report that a man had been struck by a train.

    "Officers from BTP and Thames Valley Police attended the incident, which was reported to BTP at 6.27pm and is currently being treated as non-suspicious.
    "Medics from the South Central Ambulance Service also attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
    "The man's family have been informed and a file will be prepared for the Coroner."
    In December, Mr Clegg - who was not a victim of the abuse - said he was "appalled" at the news his former headmaster had been convicted of historical child sex offences.

    Wright, 83, of Crown Lane, Farnham Royal, was found guilty of abusing five boys aged between eight and 13 by an Amersham Crown Court jury.
    He had denied 10 charges of indecent assault and two of indecency with a child at Caldicott Preparatory School.

    Mr Clegg said the nature of the abuse would "disturb everyone".

    Wright's conviction came after fellow former teachers John Addrison and Hugh Henry pleaded guilty to sex abuse.

    Henry, 82, of Pomeroy Close, Amersham, pleaded guilty to gross indecency with a child.

    Addrison, 54, of Datchet Road, Slough, Berkshire, pleaded guilty to one count of indecency with or towards a child, and was sentenced to five years' imprisonment, at Aylesbury Crown Court in November last year. He will remain on the sex offenders' register for life.
