A paedophile has been jailed for six years for the systematic and prolonged sexual abuse of his young daughter

Lorry driver David Ernest Pratt of Shaldon Road, Horfield was found guilty at Bristol Crown Court and was sentenced to six years imprisonment

The court heard that the abuse took place between 1974 and 1983 starting when the victim was just 4-years-old

The pervert was finally exposed after the victim confided in a friend that she was being abused by her father after participating in a sexual education lesson in school

Note: In November 1992, Pratt’s 22-year-old HIV-positive son Tony Dimond was jailed for having sex with a 13-year-old girl up to four times a day for five months
