Stop his appeal

For a crime as heinous as the sexual abuse of a child, there should be no right of appeal.

Convicted Budleigh Salterton paedophile Tommy Dance should not be given any opportunity to reduce his jail sentence. It is totally wrong that he is even allowed to appeal.

His crime has blighted the lives of six innocent youngsters. His abuse will have far-reaching effects that will make it difficult to live their lives as they otherwise would have done.

He must serve the full 21-and-a-half years so he suffers like they will.
