A Penzance fisherman is jailed over a catalogue of sex abuse spanning ten years.

A court heard how Jeremy Freethy groomed two young boys and paid them to keep quiet.

The 45 year old admitted to a total of 29 offences.

He will serve eight and a half years behind bars.

A judge described the impact as "shattering", adding "You were a man of positive good character, but your fall from grace is startling. These offence were planned, predatory and perpetrated over a period."
