A man has been jailed for 15 years for a string of sex offences against a young girl, including rape.

Bradley Antill, 46, of Grove, near Wantage in Oxfordshire, was convicted of 14 offences following a seven-day trial at Oxford Crown Court.

He was handed an indefinite sexual offences order and must remain on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

Antill, of Fulmar Place, was found guilty of rape and and two counts of sexual assault on a child under 13.

He was also convicted of three counts of indecent assault and eight counts of gross indecency.

Following his conviction on Friday 1 November, Thames Valley Police investigating officer Det Con Maria Morrisey said: "Antill is a dangerous predatory offender who preyed on his vulnerable victim, who was only aged between six and nine at the time of the offences.

"Antill denied the allegations, forcing his victim to relive the appalling and frightening experiences all over again."
