A Luton man has been sentenced to 12 years for sexually abusing three people and possessing extreme pornography.

William Connelly, 76, from Quantock Close, has been caged for 12 years for sexually abusing a child under the age of 13 and two women between 1990 and 2016.

The abuse happened on separate occasions.

Connelly was sentenced at Luton Crown Court, after being found unanimously guilty by a jury of eight counts of sexual assault, possession of indecent images of children and possession of extreme pornography.
