Justice catches up with 101-year-old paedophile

A 101-year-old man - thought to be the oldest defendant convicted in England and Wales - has been found guilty of a string of historical child sex offences.

Ralph Clarke, of Erdington, Birmingham, had already admitted nine counts of sexual and indecent assaults.

A jury at Birmingham Crown Court found him guilty of a further 21 counts against three children in the 1970s and 80s.

Det Con, Emma Fennon, of West Midlands Police, said: "He was a hard man who had no feelings. He's never once said sorry."
