Milkman faces jail for child abuse

A Wirral milkman has been warned he faces jail after admitting 20 child abuse offences against young boys.

61-year-old David Sparks pleaded guilty to sexually abusing 10 different boys between 1972 and 2001.

Appearing at Liverpool Crown Court on Friday (26th), Sparks, of Keswick Road, Wallasey, faced a total of 32 charges.

He pleaded guilty to 20 of them and the others are to be dropped.

Sparks will be sentenced after Christmas and Judge Harris told him:

"These are very serious of offences taken together and it is inevitable, I think, that there will be a substantial custodial sentence."
