A man who sexually abused a seven-year-old girl has been jailed for eight years.

Stephen Maskell, of East Street, Grantham, denied four charges of indecent assault between March 1991 and December 1992 but was convicted following a trial earlier this year.

The 50-year-old was also ordered to remain on the sex offenders' register for the rest of his life.

Judge Michael Heath described him as a "bully who had shown no remorse".

Lincoln Crown Court heard the victim did not complain at the time because she was too scared.

She eventually confided in a relative and police were informed.

Maskell claimed the assaults did not happen.
