One of the oldest men ever to be convicted of rape in Britain has been jailed for 14 years today and condemned to die in prison.
Enoch Winchurch, 92, was today convicted of raping two underage girls over 40 years ago.
Winchurch raped his victims when they were between the ages of seven and 14, attacking one in her bed.
The judge at Bradford Crown Court told him he had 'robbed them of their childhoods'.
After denying the charges throughout, he shouted from the dock 'Stop lying...You ****** well have...You know you did,' as he was put behind bars.

The jury found Winchurch, who struggles to walk and is in poor health, guilty of one charge of rape, one of attempted rape, six of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child.
Because of his denial, both women, now in their 40s, were forced to give evidence.
Barrister Giles Bridge, for Winchurch, conceded that his client's previous good character and age carried little weight in such cases.
He said the defendant's health problems would mean any prison sentence would be particularly difficult for him.
