The new string of charges relate to the time period between April 2006 and November 2014.

At a hearing in December last year, Oatway pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 14 years, one count of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 16 years and one count of assault of a girl under 13 by touching.

He was remanded in custody, and is set to be sentenced for all 11 charges at a hearing at Grimsby Crown Court later this year.
