AN OSTEOPATH has been jailed for more than seven years for a series of sex assaults on female patients.

Owen Bull, 49, formerly of Woodbridge Road East, Ipswich, was today sentenced at Norwich Crown Court.

Last month a jury found him guilty of attempted rape, two indecent assaults and a sexual assault.

Bull had denied all charges, which related to seven different victims over a three year period - including an undercover policewoman.

Judge Paul Downes sentenced Bull to seven and a half years in prison - six years for the attempted rape and a further 18 months for each of the other offences to run concurrently.
