A man has been convicted of sexual activity with a child following a Thames Valley Police investigation.

Paul Brian Hughes, 38, of Mazarron, Spain, pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on Tuesday to five counts of sexual activity with a child and one count of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
