Child sexual abuse images man at bail hostel

Child sexual abuse images fiend Andrew Whitmore has moved into a Leamington bail hostel amid fears convicted sex offenders from the town are being sent back there.

The former Stagecoach bus driver and Whitnash resident, 38, received a six-month prison sentence in September after pleading guilty to downloading 60 still and 11 moving images.

Whitmore, who was made to register as a sex offender for seven years, was caught with images including one of a young girl being raped by an adult.

The classifications ranged from level four – the second most serious on a scale of five – to level one.
