A man who raped two teenage girls in Peterborough has been jailed for 12 years.

Stewart Urban, 39, of Goffsmill, Bretton, attacked the girls aged 14 and 15, shortly after moving to the city in 2011.

Urban denied two counts of rape but was convicted following a trial.

Detective Sergeant Amerjit Singh from the force's Public Protection Unit, said:

"He is an extremely manipulative offender, who has shown no remorse for his crimes. In fact, he continues to blame the victims. He has put them through the ordeal of a trial and having to give evidence.

"I commend the bravery of the victims in coming forward and giving evidence which has resulted in Urban being sentenced to a significant period of time. His sentence shows that crimes of this nature, against vulnerable people in our society, will not be tolerated."
