Disgusting paedophile jailed

A disgusting paedophile found with indecent images of children that he had taken himself has been jailed.

Brian Wood, described as a “dangerous sexual predator”, was arrested in November last year at a home in Winsley Road, Colchester after police gained information that the internet connection at the address had been used to access indecent images of children.

Wood’s mobile phone was seized and officers found hundreds of indecent images and videos of children.

The 28-year-old, of Goodway Gardens, Poplar, Tower Hamlets had disturbingly taken some of the images himself.

Wood was charged with possession of indecent images of children, two counts of making indecent images of children, attempting to distribute inducement images, voyeurism, and sexual activity with a child.

He pleaded guilty to all the charges, and at Ipswich Crown Court Wood was jailed for five years and four months.

All children pictured on Wood’s phone have been identified, detectives confirmed at the hearing.
