A PENSIONER has been found guilty of sexually assaulting and attempting to rape two schoolgirls.

Terence Hockley, 74, had denied two offences of attempted rape, three of indecent assault and five offences of indecency with a child.

But following a trial at Ipswich Crown Court, a jury found him guilty on all 10 counts.

The jury heard how Hockley, of Knights Close, Old Newton, near Stowmarket, had indecently touched the girls and got them to touch him. The offences took place either at his home or in his work van.

He will be sentenced at some point in the two-week period after December 14.
