A BRADFORD man has been jailed for child sex offences.

Jack Jolliffe, 28, of Southfield Road in Little Horton, admitted to the sexual assault of a girl under the age of 13, making indecent images of children and possession of prohibited images of children.

He was jailed for four and a half years at a hearing at Bradford Crown Court earlier today (Friday, December 15).

Detective Constable Sam Swift of Bradford District Child Safeguarding Unit said: ‘We welcome the sentence handed to Joliffe today.

"He took advantage of a young girl and posed a real risk to children.

"I hope the sentence can give his victim some comfort and justice that we take all reports of sexual offences seriously and they will be investigated thoroughly.”
