A paedophile police officer who subjected his victim to “horrendous” attacks is expected to be jailed today.

Disgraced Cambridgeshire Police sergeant Nick Lidstone is currently remanded in custody after admitting a series of rapes and child sex attacks.

Since admitting the crimes last month, the 54-year-old has been sacked from his role at the force’s headquarters.

Lidstone, from Heslerton Way, Barrington, Cambridgeshire, pleaded guilty to 13 offences including three counts of rape, three counts of indecency with a child, various sexual assaults and taking an indecent photograph of a child at an earlier hearing at Norwich Crown Court.

The offences all relate to one victim and the rapes occurred when she was an adult.

Speaking after Lidstone entered his pleas, Deputy Chief Constable Alec Wood said: “This was an appalling crime where the victim was put through a horrendous ordeal over a prolonged period and I welcome today’s guilty plea.”
