A man accused of a serious sexual offence in Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, has pleaded guilty today (Monday 26 October).
On the afternoon of Monday 31 August this year, police were called to Fort Victoria Country Park with a report that a young girl had been seriously sexually assaulted in an area of woodland by a man she did not know.
Following a thorough investigation involving police officers from across the Isle of Wight and the mainland, 62-year-old Graham Medway from Freshwater was charged with rape of a child under the age of 13.
Appearing at Newport Crown Court today, he admitted the offence and was remanded in custody to appear at the same court on Friday 8 January 2021 for sentencing.
