A paedophile has been jailed after he was found guilty of sexually abusing a young girl over a number of years.

At his trial in March, 2013 at Southampton Crown Court, Nigel Phillips aged 66, was found guilty of eight counts of indecent assault against a child.

The court was told that the abuse started in the 1990’s when the child was just 11-years-old and lasted for five years.

The abuse included digital sexual penetration as well as molestation.

Phillips who worked as a carer in a care home for pensioners was sentenced to a total of six years imprisonment and was told that he will register as a sex offender for an indefinite period.
