Lancaster man jailed for raping four-year-old girl

Liam Ineson Liam Ineson must serve at least five years before his sentence is first reviewed

A 21-year-old man from Lancashire has been jailed indefinitely after he admitted raping a four-year-old girl.

Police said Liam Ineson, of Ryelands Road, Lancaster, attacked the child between January and July this year.

He pleaded guilty to rape and sexual activity with a child when he appeared at Preston Crown Court.

Speaking after sentencing, Det Sgt Simon Coates said: "Ineson preyed on a young girl and then tried to make her keep the abuse a secret."

He added: "He is a dangerous individual and the indeterminate sentence means he should not be released from prison until experts are satisfied that he no longer poses a threat to our community."

Ineson's indeterminate sentence will not be reviewed for at least five years.
