Sex attacker jailed

A man who abducted and sexually assaulted a nine-year-old boy in Guildford, Surrey, as he walked to school was jailed for six years at the Old Bailey. Howard Small was caught a week after the incident, when newspaper boys whom he had attempted to abduct gave police the registration number of the car he drove.
