George Lord

The former Conservative county councillor for Alvechurch, George Lord, has been sentenced to four years in prison for sex assaults.

Lord (79) was jailed at Birmingham Crown Court last month after previously admitting indecently assaulting a teenager in the 1970s.

He had also been convicted of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old in the council chamber on a tour of County Hall while he was leader in 2010.

Lord had been leader of Worcestershire County Council from 2001 until he stood down in November 2010, when allegations of inappropriate behaviour surfaced.

Lord stood down as a Conservative councillor for Marlbrook on Bromsgrove District Council at the same time.
