Peter Andrew Milner, 51, pleaded guilty to seven counts relating to sexual activity with a child and rape of a child at Shrewsbury Crown Court.

The offences relate to the same victim between 2007 and 2014.

Mr Ben Lawrence, prosecuting, said: "The pleas are acceptable to the crown."

A further 12 offences were allowed to lie on file at Monday's hearing.
