Father of two is found guilty of child sex offences

A man whose partner is accused of the murder of their two children in a Spanish hotel, has been found guilty of a series of child sex offences.

Martin Smith, from North Shields, was extradited from Spain earlier this year and charged with 13 sexual offences against a young girl.

His partner, Lianne Smith, 44, is accused of killing their children Rebecca, five, and Daniel, 11 months, in a Spanish resort in May.

Lorna Gordon has been following his trial at Manchester Crown Court.
