A sex attacker jailed for assaulting a woman in Wellington, Shropshire, has had his minimum prison term cut by the Court of Appeal.

Slawomir Wilczarski, 37, was given an indeterminate sentence for the attack in January 2011.

A judge at Wolverhampton Crown Court originally ordered Wilczarski to serve at least five and a half years before being considered for release.

However, a judge at the Court of Appeal has now reduced this by a year.

Wilczarski had denied sexual assault but was convicted at Shropshire Crown Court in August 2011.

He had followed the woman late at night on his cycle to the rear of St Agatha's Close, Dothill, where he pushed her to the ground and assaulted her.
