POLICE are trying to trace a man in connection with a series of child sex offences which took place in the 1970s.
Barry Robert Brunton, was last know living at London Road in Downham Market but police believe the 61-year-old has links to Ely and are appealing to the public for help in tracing him.
Brunton, who is originally from the Isle of Wight was working in schools in Hertfordshire at the time the offence is believed to have taken place and police have warned members of the public not to approach him.
The 61-year-old was previously arrested in 2003 and bailed pending further enquiries, but he failed to answer bail in early 2004. The alleged crime has recently been reviewed and has prompted a renewed appeal from officers.
