A man with a fetish for spanking girls has been jailed for abusing four children dating back to the 1970s.

Trevor Cullington-Norris, 59, assaulted four different girls, one as young as five.

His offending came to light in 2012 when two victims told family members about the abuse which happened in the mid-1990s. While police were investigating the claims, a further two victims who had been abused in the 1970s also came forward.

He pleaded guilty to a total of eight charges of indecent assault, sexual assault of a girl aged under 13 and a charge of sexual activity with a child.

He was jailed for a total of six years at Cambridge Crown Court on Friday (February 28).

Cullington-Norris, of Lancaster Gate, Upper Cambourne, Cambridgeshire, has also been made the subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order which bans him from being in the same house as a child aged under 16.

It also makes it compulsory to notify police if he starts a relationship with anyone who has children aged under-16.

Detective Constable Natalie Bottom said: “Cullington-Norris’s actions have had a lasting effect on all his victims.

“They have shown great courage to come forward and then assist what has been a lengthy investigation.

“He targeted four vulnerable young girls and the length of sentence shows just how seriously such offending is taken by the police and courts.”
