"She said she wanted to scream, but the defendant put his hand over her mouth," he said. The victim, now an adult, only told her family about the incident when she was older and only recently went to the police, the court was told. A few years later, in the late 1980s, he molested another girl when she was 13 or 14. The victim described how bare-chested Ward knelt beside her, told her he wouldn't hurt her and ordered her to unbutton her shirt. She did as she was told and then Ward picked her up and held the teenager against him so her breasts were pushed against his bare chest.

His third victim believes she was aged seven or eight when Ward began sexually abusing her, said Mr Edwards.

Daniel Janner QC, defending, told the court a lengthy sentence for his client would effectively be a 'death sentence'. His client had been diagnosed with bowl cancer and had undergone chemotherapy in 2015, the court heard. He had also undergone a heart by-pass operation in 2008. Ward, a father, had worked for the RAF for ten years and had been 'generous' to family and friends, said the QC. Judge John Potter said he took account of the defendant's age and health difficulties and he acknowledged there had been 'positive parts to your character displayed by service to this country in the RAF'.

But he went on that his crimes were so serious only a lengthy custodial sentence was appropriate. Ward showed no reaction when he was jailed for nine years. He was told he could apply for parole two-thirds of the way through his sentence. Ward was also placed on the sex offenders' register for life. None of his family members were in court to see him sentenced.
