Web paedophile groomed victims
A paedophile, who filmed himself with a young girl, has been given jail terms totalling 55 years.

Lincoln Crown Court heard how Nathan Craigs, 28, from Chesham in Bucks, seduced young girls via the internet.

One of his victims, a 14-year-old girl from Boston, Lincs, was persuaded to be filmed with him live on the web.

Craigs admitted all the charges against him including six offences of sexual activity with a 14-year-old and inciting child prostitution.

He also pleaded guilty to inciting child pornography and two charges of inciting sexual activity by a child between August and November last year.

He further admitted five charges of taking indecent images, two of making indecent images and one of possessing indecent images of a child.

He was handed six sentences of four years in jail, seven of three years and five of two years - the majority of them to run concurrently.

Judge Michael Heath handed him an overall sentence of nine years in jail, made up of consecutive terms of two, three and four years.

He has been ordered to register as a sex offender for life.
