East Hull MD admits sexual assaults after another victim comes forward
A COMPANY director who sexually assaulted two women in his factory has been ordered to pay compensation.
Managing director Neil Beaumont Oliver, 59, preyed on the women at Arrow Industrial Ltd in east Hull.
Oliver, of North Ferriby, was convicted by a jury of sexual assault last October and has now pleaded guilty to four more indecent assaults after another victim read about the trial in the Mail.
Then a teenager, she was sexually assaulted by Oliver on a daily basis when she worked for the company, Hull Crown Court heard.

Judge Mark Bury said: "This has come about due to publicity from this case.
"The victim in the trial was at first unsure whether to report it to the police because she was fearful she might not be believed but now she has the comfort of knowing a jury believed her.
"It appears this has also led to the new complaint by this young lady."
Oliver targeted both women in his factory, kissing them, groping them and slapping their bottoms.
During the trial, Oliver was also accused of attacking another woman during a job interview in 2007, later texting her to say she had the job. The woman went to the police but decided not to press charges.
The latest victim said she had not reported the abuse earlier because she feared no one would believe her.
Oliver has been given a two-year community order and ordered to pay £500 compensation.
He has been placed on the sex offenders register for five years.
Judge Bury told Oliver: "What you did was unacceptable in the modern day. You really couldn't complain if I sent you to prison but it would not be for very long and it seems to me a community order will be a significant punishment.
"You will have to go to meetings and discuss your offending and how to behave in the future."
The judge warned Oliver he will face prison if he continues to prey on women.
"You have to learn to control your urges in a civilised society as it is unacceptable," Judge Bury said.
Oliver was brought to justice last year after attacking the married woman in the factory.
The court heard Oliver targeted her, hugging her and groping her, she left the factory in tears, to return home and tell her husband.
She said: "I was in shock. The first thing that came into my head was 'Did he just do that to me, did he just touch me?'"
Her husband went to the factory, which manufactures steel doors, and assaulted Oliver after he apologised for his behaviour.
When the jury returned its guilty verdict, the woman wept, telling police: "I just wanted to make a difference to other women."
