A rapist who attacked two teenage girls has been jailed for 13 years.
Sean Ralph, 22 and from Knott End in Poulton, raped a 15-year-old girl in 2010. He then set upon another girl, aged 16, in 2011.
Detective Constable Emma Shuttleworth, of Lancashire Police, said: “I would like to commend the two young ladies for their bravery in coming forward. I hope the sentence given acts as a warning that, no matter how long ago an incident happened, we will always work to bring offenders to justice.”
