A MAN and his former wife from Caerphilly county borough have been jailed for a series of sexual offences involving their children and grandchildren.

The 56-year-old man and 45-year-old woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court today.

The man was given a total of 19 years' imprisonment, while the woman will serve a six-year jail term.

The man was found guilty of 15 counts of sexual offences following a six-week trial. His former wife, who also denied the charges against her, was found guilty of three sexual offences.

Judge David Wynn Morgan ordered the pair to sign the sex offenders register indefinitely.
