An NSPCC spokeswoman for the South West of England said: “Glover brazenly pursued and groomed a young girl over many years to fulfil his own perverted sexual desires.

“As a survivor of sexual abuse this girl has courageously spoken out about what was happening, which has prevented her abuser from inflicting harm on other children.

“She has shown extreme bravery in doing so, and it’s important she is provided with the necessary support going forward.”

Any adult concerned about the welfare of a child or young person can call the NSPCC helpline for free 24/7 on 0808 800 5000. Meanwhile, children can call Childline on 0800 1111.
