A Clevedon man has been jailed for sexual offences involving children.

Mark Hudson, of Jesmond Road, was given a four years and eight months prison sentence, plus 16-month extended license, at Bristol Crown Court on March 1.

Hudson, aged 27, pleaded guilty to two counts of causing or inciting a child under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity, and causing a child to watch a sexual act.

Hudson also pleaded guilty to making indecent photographs of a child.

He was ordered to sign the sex offenders register indefinitely and is the subject of a sexual harm prevention order, meaning he cannot have unsupervised contact with a minor.

Children’s charity NSPCC has offered guidance to victims of sexual abuse.

A spokesman said: “It’s important the necessary support is offered to all victims of sexual abuse as it can have a huge impact on children, which may take years to overcome.

“We would urge anyone concerned about the welfare of a child to contact the NSPCC helpline on 08088 005000 or visit nspcc.org.uk as it could save them from serious harm.”

Children can contact Childline on 0800 1111 or log on to childline.org.uk and speak to a counsellor about a worry or concern they may have.
