Sex offender jailed for 10 years after series of offences against a girl

SEX offender Peter Steel has been jailed for ten years after being convicted of a series of offences against a girl.

Steel, 59, of Alexandra Road, Cleethorpes, denied five offences involving allegations of sexual assault.

But he was convicted by a jury after a trial at Grimsby Crown Court.

Judge Graham Robinson jailed Steel after telling him the offences were so serious that only a lengthy prison sentence was appropriate.

Steel was ordered to register as a sex offender for life and was given a sexual offences prevention order for life.
