A jury convicted a Great Yarmouth man of a string of sexual assaults on Friday.

Martin Calver was found guilty of five counts of indecent assault on a female by majority 11-1 verdicts at Ipswich Crown Court.

He was also found guilty of two charges of doing an act of cruelty to a child or young person under 16.

Calver, 49, of Deneside, was ordered to sign the sex offenders' register and was remanded in custody until his sentencing on March 9.

Judge David Goodin said: “A custodial sentence is inevitable.”

Stephen Rose, for Calver, said his client was of previous good character and requested a pre-sentence report to determine the length of sentence.
