A man has been sent to prison for five and a half years after subjecting a girl to sexual abuse almost a decade ago in Filey.

Daniel Broadmore , 36, of Somerdale Walk, Bramley, was sentenced at York Crown Court today (Friday 5th April).

He was found guilty of all four charges relating to the girl, who was aged under 13 years, after he stood trial in January this year.

These included inciting sexual activity; indecent exposure, sexual assault and engaging in a sexual act in the presence of a child.

The victim reported the matter to North Yorkshire Police in April 2021 when she was aged in her late teens.

Police Staff Investigator Paul Thompson, from Scarborough CID, said: “The victim has grown up traumatised due to the disturbing level of abuse committed by Broadmore.

“She has suffered a great deal of anguish and anxiety for almost 10 years. It has taken a lot of courage from this brave young woman to come forward and relive the trauma of the incidents.

“Firstly, by telling her family. Then the police. And finally, telling a jury in court. Seeing Broadmore being convicted and handed a custodial sentence will hopefully provide a measure of closure and comfort, especially knowing her experience could encourage other victims of non-recent abuse to make a report and seek support.”
