A council worker who sexually assaulted two young girls and took nude photographs of them was jailed for 26 months.

Ian Rayment, 41, took the girls into a bedroom before asking them why they were naughty and pulling their heads towards his private parts.

The ten-year-old girl was then asked to take her clothes off and spread her legs while Rayment took photos of her.
