Jurors in Nottingham were told that in July 2014, the former self-employed builder got one woman pregnant despite telling her he had had a vasectomy – something he later passed off as “just banter”.

Despite reassuring her repeatedly, the court heard how Lawrance, who used Match.com with profile names such as KeepItStraightToday and StraightMan-Looking, messaged her the following day to tell her: “I have a confession. I’m still fertile. Sorry.”

He also attacked another woman in late 2012 in her Northamptonshire home before “calmly” going upstairs to have a shower.

Lawrance had met the woman after she invited him round for a coffee. 

Other women were attacked in Lawrance’s car or van, with one being pushed on a double bed in the back of his van after taking a drive to Bradgate Park, Leicestershire in January 2014.

The court was told another woman had a belt wrapped around her neck, in an area called Bluebell Woods in Dingley Dell, Market Harborough shortly after he joined Match.com in 2009.

Opening the case against Lawrance earlier in July, Clive Stockwell QC said: “Rape necessarily involves the exploitation of vulnerability, vulnerability exploited to satisfy a selfish sexual need.

“During this trial you will hear of the cruelty suffered by… vulnerable women, all exploited to satisfy a selfish sexual need.
