Telford man given 10 years for sexually assaulting a child

A Telford man has been handed a 10 year custodial sentence for sexually assaulting a young girl.

Colin Pask of Wantage in Woodside took his young victim to Blackpool in December 2022 under false pretences.

The 57-year-old told her they were going to meet his friend, when in reality Pask took her to a hotel room where he sexual assaulted her and photographed the abuse.

Pask was given a 10 year custodial sentence and ordered to pay £190 at Shrewsbury Crown Court on July 17 after he pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child and possession of an indecent image of a child
