An 85-year-old paedophile who raped a girl and sexually assaulted two others has died just eight months into an 18-year prison sentence.

Alan Styles groomed victims as young as eight years old between 2014 and 2018.

He was caught after one of his victims eventually confided in her mother following a sex education lesson at school.

The police were then alerted, prompting officers to raid his home.

They discovered a camera and memory cards containing 665 indecent images of children.

The pictures also revealed that two other girls – both under 12-years-old – had been abused by Styles.

Styles, from Wednesbury in the West Midlands, admitted to 27 offences including rape, sexual assault, taking indecent photos and sexual activity with a child.

The 85-year-old was sentenced to 18 years in prison at Wolverhampton Crown Court in November last year.

Styles was also ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for life and given two years extended licence.

But on Monday, it emerged that he died just eight months into his sentence at HMP Birmingham.
