Holyhead sex abuse traffic warden jailed

Thomas John Lloyd
The court heard Lloyd had touched a little girl under her clothing

A traffic warden and ex-rugby referee has been jailed for two-and-a-half years for sexually abusing two girls.

Thomas John Lloyd, 60, of Holyhead, Anglesey, was found guilty last month of five offences of indecent assault more than 20 years ago.

He was also convicted of seven charges of knowingly downloading indecent images of children on the internet.

Sitting at Caernarfon crown court Judge Merfyn Hughes QC told Lloyd he would have to register as a sex offender.

Lloyd, who had worked as a doorman, licensee and fireman, had denied all the charges.

The court heard he had touched a girl under her clothing.

The indecent image charges involved 34 illegal images downloaded on an office computer while he was employed as a traffic warden for Anglesey council.

The judge told Lloyd :"Offences of sexual assault of children are regarded very seriously.

"They are obviously vulnerable to predatory adults such as you."
