A man has been jailed for 24 sexual offences against children in Penzance in the 1990s.

76-year-old William Michael Reynolds from Torquay will now serve 14 years in prison and will also sign the sex offenders register.

A jury found Reynolds guilty on 21 counts of indecent assault on a male. He was also found guilty of two counts of buggery and one attempted rape.
