A former carer at Jersey children's home Haut de la Garenne was jailed for two years today after being found guilty of a string of sex attacks on teenage girls.

Gordon Wateridge, nicknamed "the Perv" by his victims, repeatedly sexually assaulted the teenagers at the home during the 1970s.

The 78-year-old, described as a "persistent sexual bully" during his trial, was found guilty of eight charges of indecent assault and one charge of assault following a trial at Jersey's Royal Court last month.
