Man sentenced to life for rape of boy, 6, at Mablethorpe
A man who raped a six-year-old boy at a caravan site in Mablethorpe has been sentenced to life in prison.
Daniel Aaron Chipchase, from Rhyl, North Wales, was arrested on October 17, 2012 after a member of the public became concerned about what was going on in a toilet cubicle at the site.
He was charged with offences relating to this rape and to the attack of two girls aged three and five back in North Wales, including the rape of one.
Chipchase, 20, was today sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court to life imprisonment and the Judge Sean Morris ruled that he must serve a minimum of 12 years before being considered for release.

Judge Morris told the offender: “I am of the view that you represent a risk of serious harm to children.”
He added that Chipchase would not be released until the authorities deemed it safe to do so and said he felt he would probably pose a risk to children for the rest of his life.
Detective Sergeant Alison Smith, from Lincolnshire Police, said: “This has been a harrowing case for all concerned particularly the very young victims who were targeted and abused by the predatory Chipchase.
“It has also been distressing for the investigation team who has been shocked and appalled by the level of sexual abuse carried out by Chipchase.”
Detective Sergeant Smith went on to thank the team, the Crown Prosecution Service and all the witnesses for their help in bringing the dangerous paedophile to justice in particular the witness who was concerned about what was happening in the toilet cubicle.
She added: “It is frightening to think what might have happened to other children had his reign of terror and abuse carried on unchecked.”
