A child sex offender brought back to the UK by Sussex Police after being arrested in France with his twin brother, has been jailed for 22 months.

Kenneth Parker, 56, pleaded guilty to breaching the notification requirements of the sex offenders register.

He and his brother Thomas were arrested in April. Kenneth's last known address was in Sussex but the twins also had links to Warwickshire.

Thomas Parker was jailed for assault in France for 10 months in June.

The brothers were the first twins to have their details published on the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) most wanted website in March this year.

Kenneth Parker was extradited from France in June and escorted back to the UK by officers from Sussex Police.

He appeared for sentencing at Lewes Crown Court on Friday.
