“Although these offences happened many years ago we have still brought Greaves to justice and he has a long time in prison to consider the consequences of his actions.

“I would appeal to anyone suffering sexual abuse now or who has suffered in the past and felt unable to come forward before, not to suffer in silence. Come forward and tell us what has happened. We will listen to you and we will take action, no matter how long ago the offences took place.”
