Youth club sex beast Richard Blackburn sexually abused at least two other young girls while driving a bus for the Raphoe Congregational Church – victim Rachel McAuley’s husband reveals.

In a heart-breaking interview with the Sunday World from the couple’s home in Cumbria, Scotland, Rachel’s husband Stephen lashed out at the sentence handed down by Donegal Circuit Court, saying it means monster Blackburn will be freed in just nine months.

He revealed how two other girls have told the couple they were abused by Blackburn but have yet to speak with Gardaí.

Stephen said he hopes other victims will come forward so that one day vile Blackburn will get the sentence he “really deserves”.

Land Rover dealer Blackburn (57), a former youth club worker with Raphoe Congregational Church in Donegal, was this week exposed as a serial child sex attacker after Rachel waived her right to anonymity so he could be named and shamed.
