    A Derby man who raped and molested a young girl has had his jail term increased today. 

    Steven Robert Cook, 40, gave his victim sweets and threatened her.

    He was originally jailed for five-and-a-half years in May at Derby Crown Court after admitting rape and sexual assault of a child under 13. 

    His sentence has now been upped to seven-and-a-half years at the court of appeal in London by judges, who said his original term was far too lenient.
