Police believe Delroy Grant may have committed 600 attacks

Scotland Yard detectives say Delroy Grant committed some of the most "awful and disturbing" crimes they have ever investigated.

The 53-year-old former mini cab driver was convicted of robbing, attacking or raping 18 elderly people, including an 89-year-old woman, in south London.

Police believe he carried out many more attacks, possibly 600 in all, on vulnerable people.

The police have apologised to all of Grant's victims for missing a chance to stop him more than ten years ago.

Tom Symonds reports.
