Metcalfe, formerly of Cross Lane, Blidworth, denied the charges but was found guilty following a nine day trial at Derby Crown Court.

The prosecution was brought following investigations by both Derbyshire Police and Nottinghamshire Police’s Operation Equinox team, the force’s ongoing inquiry into non-recent sexual abuse.
