A 12-strong jury heard that the assaults were said to have taken place at his home address, as well as his car, a shed, and a bus where he worked as a driver.

The court heard the ages ranged from four to 13 years old.

One victim, who gave evidence in court, said: “I remember being like…I couldn’t move. It was like I was paralysed. I felt what he was doing but I couldn’t speak.”

Summers will now be sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Friday, March 1.
