London babysitter who raped 3-year-old boy dies in prison

Predator Barry Britton, who lived in Westminster, befriended a family until they felt safe leaving him alone with their toddler. 

He then abused his position of trust and sexually abused the young boy. 

Britton was jailed for life with a minimum term of just five years in 2014. 

In 2020 he was further convicted of a catalogue of sexual abuse against two young girls which dated back as far as the 1970s. 

Over the course of 30 years he subjected the two girls to a series of sexual attacks. 

For these offences he was jailed for a further nine years. 

It has now been revealed that the 73-year-old died of lung cancer in August 2021 while a prisoner of HMP Whatton. 

He was diagnosed in May 2021 before he died on August 3. 

A coroner ruled that he died of natural causes.
