A PENSIONER has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a young girl.

Christopher Barrable, 68, molested the girl, who was aged five and six, a number of times in 2009 and 2010.

Barrable, who lived in Portchester at the time but now lives in Sweetwater Close, Guildford, Surrey, denied touching the girl but was found guilty by a jury at Portsmouth Crown Court.

Judge Roger Hetherington adjourned the case for a pre-sentence report to be completed. Barrable is due to be sentenced on July 29.
