During the summer of 2017, Herbert sexually assaulted a woman in her 80s on two separate occasions near to High Wycombe.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant James Wood said: "Paul Herbert took advantage of a vulnerable woman, who did not consent to any activity.

"I want to commend the victim and her family for their bravery in coming forward and reporting what was understandably an extremely upsetting assault.

"Hopefully this jail sentence will provide the victim and her family some comfort.

"Our team worked tirelessly to get this case to court and obtain justice for them. We take all reports of sexual offences extremely seriously and will relentlessly pursue perpetrators."
