A father and son from Colwyn Bay have been sentenced to a combined 28 years in prison for a series of rapes on women and children.

Barry Ford, who's 64, was sentenced to 18 years for six counts of rape and 10 counts of sexual assault. His son Craig McKellar, who's 31, was given a 10-year sentence for three counts of rape and four counts of sexual assault.

North Wales Police DC Paul Jones said 'Ford has shown no remorse for his crimes, putting the victims and witnesses through the ordeal of a court trial.' His crimes dated back to the 1980s and he was described by the judge as a 'monster who has gone through his life ruining lives.'

McKellar admitted all offences he was accused of.

Both men were ordered to register as sex offenders for life.
