A community has been divided and I would like to think that we can now put this behind us and rebuild our lives. John Norrish was seen as an upstanding member of the community and he abused that trust. This result means that no-one else will be subjected to this type of abuse from him. He had his head bowed as the judge told him: I have no doubt that you appreciated that.

Instead of simply giving her a lift home as you should have done, you took advantage of her as she sat in the front passenger seat of your car.

She did not consent to your advances, early on she told she did not want to. You did not reasonably believe that she was consenting and proceeded to have sexual intercourse. This was a grave abuse of a vulnerable woman. Norrish remained impassive as the sentence of four years was passed, of which he will serve half behind bars before he is considered for released on licence. She said she was 'hysterical' and her husband wanted to track down Norrish who drove off with her shoes, knickers and handbag in the foot-well of his vehicle.

Det Con Paul Feeney said: His lawyer Robert Linford told the judge that his client had led an outdoor lifestyle all his life and a custodial sentence will be hard for him to bear.

Norrish, who is now retired from is job as huntsman with the Tiverton Staghounds, is still married. Norrish was described by one of the people serving behind the fully stocked bar as 'the star of the show' that night.

It was said he stood proudly at the entrance to the Cobley Farm event wearing his red hunting jacket, collecting tickets off the people who were attending the Tiverton Staghounds ball last July. Norrish, who has two grown-up sons, was a big part of the West Country hunting scene. During his lengthy career, which dated back to the s, he had been associated with the Devon and Somerset Staghounds, the South Devon Foxhounds, the Minehead Harriers in Somerset and latterly the Tiverton Staghounds.

He lived at the kennels where he looked after the hounds that took part in the hunting over Exmoor.

Her unsuspecting victims gave Natalie free rein in their homes, where she would help them with odd jobs around the house or with tasks on nearby farms.

They had no idea she was stealing from them under their noses as many of the items she took were so valuable they did not wear them every day. Tongue, who is a keen horse rider and is believed to have ridden with the respected Worcestershire Hunt, systematically stole priceless family heirlooms. The victims said items she lifted included diamond rings and necklaces which had been given to them as wedding gifts or as inheritance Her victims, who did not want to be identified, are said to be "distraught" at her betrayal The items she had stolen were hidden away, the types of things that you would never wear on an everyday basis, because they were so precious.

But as the victims looked around their homes they gradually realised what had been taken, and they had to come to terms with the fact that someone they had trusted, so implicitly, had betrayed them, so completely It is a really sad tale. Nobody can believe this young girl could have stooped so low. She is due to be sentenced next month.

Tongue pleaded guilty to two charges of burglary and two of fraud, by representing that the stolen items were hers to sell. She was given a week jail sentence, suspended for 18 months, and was ordered to carry out hours of unpaid work.
