Bedford man Jason Manning jailed for child sex abuse

A 40-year-old man from Bedford has been jailed for 19 years after being convicted of sexually abusing three children.

Jason Manning, of Coventry Road, was found guilty at St Albans Crown Court of four charges of rape and 11 of indecent assault.

The attacks on the children happened between 1988 and 2008, the court was told.

He was cleared of one rape charge at court last month.
