He was found guilty of raping a woman in Rusthall, Kent, and convicted of raping another victim, twice, in the Tunbridge Wells area.

Hutchinson had previously admitted to two offences of unlawful sexual activity in relation to a teenage girl, said police.

An NSPCC spokesperson said, “This is a shocking case in which Hutchinson carried out a series of sexual attacks with a child among his victims.

“Each has shown immense courage in speaking out about their ordeals and ensuring that Hutchinson is now facing the consequences of his crimes.”
