A Margate man has been jailed for 16 years after he was found guilty of multiple child sex offences between 2007 and 2008.

James McCaw, 26, was found guilty at Canterbury Crown Court on February 13 of attempted rape, rape, assault of a child, sexual assault of a child and two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
