Speaking after the sentencing of Alldis, Detective Inspector Carla Cross from Merseyside Police's specialist Unity team said: "Alldis is a dangerous and predatory sex offender who will now serve a lengthy sentence, as well as being closely monitored upon his release.

"His victim has shown immense strength, courage and patience to get to this point, and we will continue to support her as she looks to move forward. Hopefully this outcome aids the process of her recovery in some way.

"Alldis showed absolutely no remorse for his actions, which undoubtedly added to the harm caused to his victim."

The detective encouraged victims to come forward and report serious sexual offences. She added: "Please be assured that we have a team of dedicated staff who will expertly and compassionately deal with your reports and we will do everything we can to bring offenders to justice. We take all such reports extremely seriously, and work with partner organisations, who are there to support victims every step of the way."
