A man's been jailed for 10 months for sexually assaulting two women for had come to him for help treating illnesses.

62-year-old David Walsh from North Denes Road in Great Yarmouth had a holistic therapy business called Rainbow Therapies.

The assaults happened at Walsh's home.

The two female victims, one aged in her 20s and the other her 30s but who cannot be named for legal reasons, were suffering from ME and depression and had visited Walsh for treatment.

During each session however Walsh sexually assaulted each of the victims by touching and alleged such techniques were part of their therapy.

Walsh admitted three counts of sexual assault at Norwich Crown Court.

Det Con Matt Jenkins of Great Yarmouth CID, said: "Both victims were feeling particularly low and had visited Walsh as they truly believed he would offer professional holistic treatment.

"Instead however, Walsh took advantage and exploited their vulnerabilities. Both victims have been left extremely shaken and distressed by what happened to them.

"The only positive is that Walsh pleaded guilty and they were saved the ordeal of having to relive what happened to them in a court room."
