A FORMER Gwynedd man has been jailed for historic sexual offences.

Michael Geoffrey Murray, 76, formerly of Arthog was jailed on Tuesday, for eight months in connection with historic indecent image offences committed in 2004 in Gwynedd south.

DCI Brian Kearney of Caernarfon CID said: "I welcome the sentence and hope it will reinforce our commitment to eradicate all forms of child abuse.

"Each and every time an image is taken, uploaded or viewed a child is abused and those who commit such vile acts must learn there are victims behind each and every image.

"His sentence also reflects the seriousness in which offences of this sickening nature, no matter when they were committed, are investigated and justice is served."
