A former music teacher has been jailed for sexual assault and possessing three "paedophile manuals".

Nicholas Fisher, 43, of Hollylea Close, Hereford, was found guilty of sexually assaulting two girls under 13.

Fisher was also found guilty of eight charges of making indecent images of children, found in guides on how to groom or abuse children.

He was sentenced to two and a half years in prison on Wednesday after a trial at Worcester Crown Court.

Fisher had previously pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to separate counts of making indecent images of children found in one of the guides.

But he was found not guilty of five counts of sexual assault.

Det Con Paul Cowmeadow, from West Mercia Police, said: "These were offences committed against vulnerable young people by a person in a position of trust.

"Anyone who possesses a guide on how to groom or abuse children is clearly a risk to our community and this is demonstrated in Fisher's case by the offences he committed."
