ONE OF Britain's most prolific sex attackers was jailed for an indeterminate period last week in order to protect the public.

Rapist taxi driver, John Worboys, must serve a minimum of eight years in prison after he was found guilty of preying on women in the back of his cab.

He is linked to at least 85 attacks in London and Bournemouth dating back to 2002 and police fear there may be more victims yet to come forward.

Worboys, 51, of Sovereign Crescent, Rotherhithe, was dubbed the 'Black Cab Rapist' after he drugged and assaulted a string of women.
