A pensioner has been jailed for two years after being found guilty of an indecent assault on a young girl dating back to the 1960s.
Harry Wilkinson was convicted of the attack on an eight-year-old girl in a lane in Scarcliffe in Derbyshire.
The 72 year-old from Cavendish Road in Bolsover carried out the assault after taking the victim for a drive in his car in 1963.
He appeared at Derby Crown Court last week, where he was given a two-year prison sentence and ordered to sign the sex offenders register for 10 years.
