A Luton woman has been jailed for four years after sexually abusing a small child.

Renata Manyoki, 21, of Dallow Road, Luton, was found guilty of sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13 and taking indecent images of children.

Manyoki was arrested in 2016 after videos of her sexually abusing a child were found.

An investigation was carried out by Bedfordshire Police and she was subsequently charged with two counts of child sex abuse.

Det Sgt Graeme Twyford said: “This was an absolutely sickening case of child sexual abuse which saw a young child being taken advantage of in the very worst possible way.

“It is incomprehensible to imagine that anyone would think it is acceptable to sexually abuse such a young child and I’m pleased that she will be locked away and prevented from causing any further harm.”
