Investigating officer Detective Constable Joseph Stevenson, of Banbury CID, said: “Webb was behind bars yet still managed to carry out these offences which left two women extremely fearful and suffering mental distress.

“We are pleased he has been given a further custodial sentence and hope it demonstrates we will do all we can to prosecute those responsible for this type of behaviour.”
