A shop keeper has been jailed for 15 years after he admitted committing dozens of sex offences against school girls.

Swansea Crown Court heard Clive Davies subjected the girls to "systematic sexual abuse" during the 1970s and 1980s.

The court heard he plied his victims with alcohol from his corner shop in Port Talbot and then took indecent pictures of them.

One of his victims reported being abused for three years and the court was told he threatened to reveal the photos if the girls reported the abuse.

The 74 year old's crimes were kept secret until last year when officers began to investigate after his, now adult, victims came forward.

The shopkeeper was then arrested and pleaded guilty to 31 sexual offences against girls.

Judge Geraint Walters called his crimes 'truly disturbing'.

"Your conduct was nothing short of pure wickedness. 

"You were a predatory paedophile who preyed on young girls. You deprived them of their childhoods."

Davies, now of Swansea, was jailed for 15 years.
