A paedophile who put a vulnerable girl through a "harrowing ordeal" has been jailed.

Andrew Clark, 36, was sentenced to seven years and four months in prison at Hull Crown Court for a string of sex offences on a girl under 13.

Clark, of Pelham Road, Immingham, pleaded guilty to seven counts of sexual assault at an earlier hearing.

Humberside Police said the defendant caused his victim "significant distress".

Det Con Teresa Colledge said: "I am pleased that this paedophile has been locked away for a number of years and does not pose any further harm to his victim.

"I also hope that this sentence will help bring some closure to her. This has been a harrowing ordeal for both her and her family."
