Adam Aitken, 29, was sentenced to 13 years behind bars by Judge Sean Enright at Peterborough Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to six offences against boys the age of under 13, dating back to 2008.

Officers anticipate that there may be victims across the country who have yet to come forward, and have appealed for them to make contact.

DCI Jon Adam, senior investigating officer at Cambridgeshire police’s public protection department, said afterwards: “Given the level of offending shown by Aitken, it is anticipated there could be other victims.

“We believe he had links to the Bedfordshire, Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Surrey, West Yorkshire and Scotland areas.

“We have specially-trained officers available to anyone would like to discuss their individual case.”

Aitken, of Kinnears Walk in Peterborough, pleaded guilty to a count of raping a boy under 13, a count of sexually assaulting a boy under 13, three counts of sexual activity with a child and a count of causing a child under 13 to watch sexual activity.

He will not be eligible for parole until 2023. In addition the prison term, Mr Enright imposed a sexual harm prevention order and restraining orders preventing Aitken from contacting his victims.

Aitken must also sign the sex offenders’ register.

Victims should call the Operation Dunholt team at Cambridgeshire police on 101.
