Andrew Horrocks was sentenced to 12 years in imprisonment in 2007 for four counts of rape and two of sexual assault against a five year old girl.

But in December 2013 he landed a position as deliveryman for Whistl, based at its sorting depot in Prestwich, Greater Manchester.

His job required him to deliver post to schools.

However Horrocks was given the sack after another member of staff alerted the company to his past.

A former colleague at the Prestwich depot said: "This has caused panic among the management at work.

"Horrocks has been going to schools and businesses as well as private homes – that is what we do. We deliver post to those kind of premises."

The paedophile declared to Whistl that he had an unspent conviction for a sexual offence, but they claimed he did not give them the full details.

They added that although a Criminal Record Bureau check on Horrocks confirmed that he had a conviction, a clerical error meant that the details were not passed on during the recruiting process.

A spokesperson for Whistl said: "Andrew Horrocks was employed as a delivery operative by the company in autumn 2013. He was subject to a CRB check and the ongoing associated Mail Integrity Code of Practice for the delivery of mail.

"He had declared an unspent conviction – and due to an unacceptable administrative error the conviction was not highlighted.

"As soon as we became aware of the conviction we met with Mr Horrocks and agreed to terminate his employment."

Whistl is now carrying out a review of all 3,000 of its delivery staff.
