A former council children's care home worker has been jailed for six years for the abuse of a 13-year-old boy.

Barrie Pick, 74, of Nottingham, was convicted at Nottingham Crown Court of two counts of indecent assault and two of indecency with a child.

Police said the offences dated back to 1977 and took place at the Beechwood children's home in the city.

Pick's case was part of Operation Equinox which looked a historical abuse in Nottinghamshire care homes.

He was cleared of a third count of indecency with a child.
