Green, of Alicante, Spain, was jailed for two years, made the subject of a restraining order and must sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years.

Detective Sergeant Matt Grant, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This sentencing is testament to the strength and bravery of the two victims who came forward and trusted the police service with their complaints.

“Green’s sentencing will never make up for what happened but I hope it gives them some comfort to know that he has been locked up for a significant amount of time.

“I also hope this sentence gives encouragement to any other survivors of abuse that they can come forward and we will investigate and seek justice for them – even if the abuse happened a long time ago.

“Nottinghamshire Police takes reports of such matters very seriously and will investigate them, working with the Crown Prosecution Service, to put a robust case to the courts. Reporting of such matters should not be deterred by time delays or the community standing of those responsible.”

There are a number of different agencies who are able to offer independent help and support to survivors of sexual abuse in Nottinghamshire.
