PAEDOPHILE has been locked up for five years for his­toric sex at­tacks on two young girls. Glyn Lord, 53, from Mac­cles­field, de­nied prey­ing on the young­sters, but was found guilty by a jury.

His crimes in­cluded in­de­cently as­sault­ing one girl when she was of pri­mary school age. He also sex­u­ally as­saulted an­other girl twice on the same day around 10 years later.

Lord, of Nixon Street, who also went un­der the name Glyn Fletcher, was locked up for five years at Ch­ester Crown Court.

Speak­ing af­ter the sen­tenc­ing a spokesper­son for the NSPCC said: “Lord’s cam­paign of abuse against two young, vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren is heart­break­ing and will have had a long-last­ing im­pact on both vic­tims.

“We com­mend the brav­ery of these women to come for­ward.

“Thanks to them Lord has now been brought to jus­tice and, while in prison, can pose no risk to chil­dren.”
