Waking up behind bars: a Newquay man who sexually abused a young girl when he worked as a private gas man in the north-east.

Paul Marven from Lane was jailed for more than six years at Teeside Crown Court on Wednesday.

The 57 year old was found guilty of charges dating back to the 1990s.

Detective Constable Steve Alderson, of Northallerton Protecting Vulnerable Persons Unit, welcomed Marven's sentence.

He said: "Paul Marven probably thought that had got away with sexually abusing a vulnerable teenage girl but thanks to the bravery of the victim, who found the courage to come forward after so many years, he has now been brought to justice.

"I hope that she can take some satisfaction from the fact that Marven is now behind bars and continue to rebuild her life.

"This case highlights the fact that no matter how much time has elapsed sexual offenders can still be caught and punished for their actions.

"I would urge anyone who has been sexually abused, whether it was recently or occurred many years ago, to come forward. The police will take your case seriously and with sensitivity and will offer you all the support you need."
