A trucker has been convicted of sexually abusing a young girl in Watford in the 1960s and 70s.

Brian Holt, 69, of Garsmouth Way, Watford, was accused of 14 offences of indecent assault and indecency with the child between 1968 and 1973. He was convicted of ten charges and cleared of four.

St Albans crown court heard that, at the time, the victim was aged between 6 and 11 and he was aged between 24 and 29.

Prosecutor Wayne Cleaver told the jury that the woman, who is now 51, spoke to her father about what she said had gone on and he called the police.

The woman was interviewed and told officers that the offences took place at an address in Watford and in the defendant's lorry.

Officers located Mr Holt, who was arrested. He was taken to Watford police station where he made no comment to police questions.

Holt is due to be sentenced on July 3.
