A HEREFORD man has been jailed for seven years for trying to incite sexual activity with a child.

The act meant that Kevin Duffett, from St Owen Street, was also in breach of a sexual offences prevention order.

The 47-year-old admitted the two charges when he appeared before Worcester Crown Court this week.

Judge Jim Tindal also placed Duffett on the sex offenders' register for life during the sentencing hearing and banned him from working with children.
