Charles Kent, who now lives at Deeping St James, Peterborough, was convicted following a trial at Norwich Crown Court, of charges of gross indecency with the girls.

The offences date back about 15 years ago.

Jailing him for four years, Judge Katharine Moore said there had been a “significant impact” on his victims. However she accepted that Kent was in poor health and was a full-time carer for his wife.

William Carter, for Kent, said he had a “cocktail” of ailments and since his trial had been hospitalised twice.

He said: “He is of minimal risk of reoffending .”
