A man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison, 30 years after seriously sexually abusing two females.

Arthur Leonard Neal, 70, from Murray Road in Rugby was found guilty of 14 charges at Birmingham Crown Court.

The attacks happened between 1971 and 1984 when the females were aged between 4 and 21.

Judge Robert Orme condemned Neal's behaviour but commended the bravery of the two women for giving evidence during the four day trial.
