A pervert who took photographs of girls as they made their way to school has been banned from the whole of Salford – after being caught by the dad of one of the victims.

Wayne Stott, 40, targeted teenage girls near a school in Salford and took dozens of pictures on his mobile phone.

But a 16-year-old girl spotted Stott and phoned her dad who raced to the school and confronted the sex pest.

He detained Stott following a scuffle and he has now been barred from entering Salford and taking any photographs for the next two years.

At Manchester city magistrates’ court prosecutor Gareth Hughes said police had found another 19 pictures of girls on Stott’s mobile phone, as well as a pair of knickers for a young girl.

Judge Jonathon Finestein said unemployed Stott’s behaviour had been ‘deplorable’.

He added: “This is very serious – you invaded the privacy of young girls aged between 13 and 15. On finding out what you had done many of them became distressed and frightened.

“You have an unhealthy sexual concern for girls and need help to prevent a repetition”.

Stott, of Lyndon Croft, Oldham , pleaded guilty to outraging public decency in Ecclesbetween February and June.

He was given a two year supervision order to attend a sex offenders’ group programme.

Kathy Mulhearn, defending, said Stott needed treatment.

She added: “He has a fetish for young girls and has shown incredible honesty.”

Judge Finestein said several of the girls had expressed concern on finding out what Stott had been doing.

He added: “But I accept that there was no risk of the girls being stalked or their pictures being put on the internet.”

Stott was ordered to pay £85 prosecution costs and a £60 surcharge
