The quaint village hiding a 26-year-old with sinister search history

A paedophile instantly admitted to searching for porn of “jailbait teens” and “school girls” when police came knocking at his door in the quiet East Riding village of Buckton.

Officers attended the home near Flamborough last year where they asked Daniel Waddington if he had indecent images of children on his devices.

The “relieved” 26-year-old said he did and officers found nearly 20 images and 16 videos of child sex abuse images on his laptop and computer.

Police also found that Waddington, who lived with his mum, had actively searched for “jailbait teens, schoolgirls and young teen porn”.

Despite officers finding explicit images of naked girls aged from ten to 12 years old, Waddington denied that he had a sexual interest in children when he was interviewed.

Waddington, of Pump Lane in Buckton, appeared at Hull Crown Court on Thursday (April 29) after pleading guilty to three counts of making indecent images of children.

Informing Waddington of the seriousness of the offences he committed, which can lead to a maximum of ten years imprisonment, Recorder Turner said: “What you have to realise is that these people depicted on the material you got a kick out of watching are damaged by what they are put through.

“That has to stop. It does seem to me that there is some work that can be done with you to assist you and to ensure there is no repeat offending.

“It is just possible to allow you to retain your liberty.”

Waddington was sentenced to a three-year community order and must adhere to a sexual harm prevention order for five years.
