'Night-stalker' Clive Howard admits rapesNorfolk Police

Night-stalker rapist Clive Howard has been jailed for life after he admitted to attacking six women across a period of three decades.

The 57-year-old from Stowmarket, Suffolk, confessed to the rapes in Norfolk and Cambridge between 1986 and 2014.

While sentencing Howard at Norwich Crown Court, Judge Stephen Holt said he was "every woman's living nightmare".

Howard, who must serve a minimum of 10 years and three months before being considered for parole, pleaded guilty to seven counts of rape, three of kidnap and one of attempted rape at an earlier hearing.

He preyed on women by prowling streets alone at night and targeted victims who were on their own. Using a red Volvo car, he garnered the nickname "night-stalker".

Police used CCTV footage to identify part of his car's registration plate, in Norwich in May 2014. Officers tracked Howard down using that information and DNA, then linked him to old crimes from years ago.

According to reports, police said 15 more women have come forward in the past month fearing they may have been attacked by Howard.
