A 28-year-old man from RAF Benson has been jailed for raping a woman in Cornwall in 2008.

Lee Hosking appeared at Truro Crown Court on Monday and was sentenced to nine-and-a-half years after pleading guilty to three counts of rape in Penzance on May 5, 2008.

The MoD was keeping his rank secret last night, but confirmed he was a member of the RAF.
