A 37-year-old man who sexually abused children has been jailed for 24 years.

Craig McCabe, of Albany Road, Great Yarmouth, appeared at Norwich Crown Court for sentencing today.

He had previously pleaded guilty to 11 offences; nine counts of rape and two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity committed between 2011 and 2016.

Detective Sergeant Stacey Murray, from the Child Abuse Investigation Unit, which led the enquiry, said: 'This was a horrendous case and the sentence imposed demonstrates this. I hope it provides some closure to the victims.

'We hope such a result will help to reassure victims that we will always investigate any allegations of sexual abuse thoroughly and as a consequence bring offenders to justice.'

McCabe was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely.
