The eight-year jail term handed to Max Clifford reflects the impact his crimes have had on his young women victims, a spokesperson for charity Victim Support has said.
Adam Pemberton, the charity's assistant chief executive, said it was the "compelling testimony" of the abused women - described as "liars" and "fantasists" by Clifford in court - that convicted him.
He paid tribute to the women for "finding the strength" to give evidence against the powerful PR man.
