A vile British paedophile has been jailed after he was caught in an FBI sting abusing a young girl live over the internet.

Michael Spencer, 48, made contact with the undercover FBI agent based in Virginia, USA, through a shadowy online chatroom.

After exchanging details, he went on to speak to the man on Skype – unaware that he was a US law enforcement official.

To the agent’s horror, perverted Spencer persuaded a five-year-old girl to perform a sex act on him live on Skype.

The shocking incident last August was video recorded by the FBI, who traced him to an address 4,000 miles away in Skegness, Lincs.

Officers knocked on Spencer’s door just days later and arrested him on suspicion ofabusing the traumatised youngster.

They seized computer and mobile phone equipment which showed he had been distributing indecent photographs of children.

Spencer admitted charges of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and inciting child pornography relating to the five-year-old.

He further admitted sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl together with possessing, making and distributing indecent images of children.

Recorder Nicholas Syfret QC jailed him on Monday for 12 years and nine months at Lincoln Crown Court and ordered him to remain on licence at risk of being returned to jail until 2031.

He told Spencer “These were monstrous offences. I have no hesitation in finding that you are dangerous.”
