Police believe that a photographer who was last week convicted of child abuse against young girls during the 1980s may have abused others and have appealed for them to come forward.

Photographer David Trainer, 56, was convicted of sexual assault against girls aged as young as six, at his flat and swimming baths in the Brixton area of London.

Trainer?s documentary photos have been displayed at exhibitions in London, including one at the Tate.

The photographer (pictured), from Lambeth, was sentenced to eight years in prison and made to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life.

DC Kevin Snow said: ?This was an extremely difficult case and I commend the victims for their resolve and fortitude throughout the investigation and subsequent trial.

?It is hoped this verdict will send out a strong message to offenders that the Metropolitan Police will pursue allegations no matter how long ago the incidents occurred.?

People who believe they may have been victims are urged to call the Lambeth Child Abuse Investigation Team on 020 7232 6397.
