2:41 pm on 20 January 2014

Nelson police have confirmed they have received further complaints relating to a former teacher jailed last week for sexual offending against children.

Lawrence Shaw, who taught throughout the Nelson Bays area as well as in Marlborough and Christchurch over the past 20 years, was jailed for two years and three months.

His victims were not children he taught.

A police spokesperson confirmed that another two complaints have been received this week.

One is being investigated and the other is still in its very early stages.
