Man sentenced for 15 years over sexual offences

A 76-year-old man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after he was found guilty of 19 charges of serious sexual offences against children.

Bryan Lockwood of Albert Street, Grantham, was sentenced when he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court on Wednesday, 23 August.

It comes after he was convicted of all 19 charges – which date as far back as 1986 – earlier this year in July.

Lockwood was also ordered to sign up to the sex offenders register for life.
