News Desk

A National Crime Agency investigation has seen a Lincolnshire man convicted of raping and sexually assaulting children as young as seven over a 20-year period.

Christopher Manning, 38, from Grantham, was arrested by NCA officers in February last year, with assistance from Lincolnshire Police after he was identified as being involved in exchanging indecent images and encouraging the abuse of children online.

During online chats, Manning had stated that he was “into” young children, and claimed to have sexually assaulted a four-year-old girl on several occasions, saying he wanted to video and watch the abuse back.

Further NCA inquiries established that Manning had raped and sexually assaulted young children over the course of many years.

His first victim described how, in 1998 when aged seven, she woke to find him in her bed and raping her. The sexual abuse continued every other weekend until she was aged 21.

Manning was charged with rape, sexual assault and indecent images of children offences. He was convicted by a jury on 20 January and is due to be sentenced at the same court on 16 March.
