Child abuser jailed for ‘horrific’ sex attacks on young girls

A man responsible for raping and sexually abusing girls in Fife over a decade has been convicted.

At Edinburgh High Court, Wayne Elliot pled guilty to rape, lewd and libidinous practices and sexual assault following the abuse of four girls between October 2007 and September 2018.

The offences took place at addresses in north west Edinburgh, central Fife and north east Fife.

The girls were aged between six and 16 years old during the time of the abuse.

Elliot, now 37, became subject of an investigation by Fife’s Public Protection unit in September 2018 when the females all came forward to report the sexual abuse.

As a result of these inquiries, Elliot was arrested and charged on September 28, 2018.
