A former scout master from Oxfordshire who sexually abused boys in Buckinghamshire has been jailed for six years.

Brian Bailey, 42, of High Street, Abingdon, pleaded guilty to 18 of 25 charges against him at Amersham Crown Court, Buckinghamshire.

He was arrested while he was out of jail on probation, after being convicted of a previous charge of abusing a child.

In court, Lord Justice Parmoor described him as "a thoroughly dangerous man" with a history of abusing children, which dated back to his teens.
