A man who raped two teenage girls in Peterborough has been jailed for 12 years.

Stewart Urban, 39, of Goffsmill, Bretton, attacked the girls in 2011 after moving to the city.

He raped the girls, aged 14 and 15, in his car after befriending them.

He denied two counts of rape but was convicted following a trial.

He was jailed for a total of 12 years at Peterborough Crown Court on Monday, December 23.

Detective Sergeant Amerjit Singh from the force's Public Protection Unit, said: "Urban abused the girls in the most horrific and traumatic way.

"He is an extremely manipulative offender, who has shown no remorse for his crimes. In fact, he continues to blame the victims. He has put them through the ordeal of a trial and having to give evidence.

"I commend the bravery of the victims in coming forward and giving evidence which has resulted in Urban being sentenced to a significant period of time. His sentence shows that crimes of this nature, against vulnerable people in our society, will not be tolerated."
