An amateur radio enthusiast who raped a teenage boy who shared his interest has been jailed for nine years.

Kenneth Dobson, 74, of Kinmel Bay, Conwy plied the boy, 14, with whisky before carrying out the abuse, which happened more than a decade ago.

Dobson admitted indecently assaulting the boy but was found guilty of rape by a jury at Caernarfon Crown Court.

North Wales Police welcomed the sentence, which it said reflected the serious nature of the case.
