Paedophile jailed following a string of child sex offences

A paedophile has been jailed for more than ten years following a string of child sex offences.

Adam Austin-Andrew, from Harwich, admitted one count of engaging in sexual activity in front of a child, two counts of indecent assault, two counts of causing a child to watch a sexual act, five counts of sexual assault on a child and two counts of taking indecent images of children at Chelmsford Crown Court yesterday.

Police arrested the 38-year-old in March in connection with recent child offences involving children under 13.

Following his arrest police received details of sexual abuse dating back to the 1990s on a child, who was aged under 13 at the time.

He has been jailed for 10 years and nine months for the various offences.
