Lancashire paedophile who made victim watch videos of men raping children jailed

A paedophile who made one of his victims watch a video of older men raping children has been jailed.

David Gardner, 65 was jailed for 11 years for abuse he committed between 2000 and 2010.

Gardner, of Skelmersdale, was also put on the Sex Offender’s Register for life, after being convicted of sexually abusing a boy and a girl who were aged between 10 and 13 at the time.

Although the victims were too young to fully understand what the defendant was doing to them, one did question his actions but in response, Gardner said it was “all just fun”.

He also made one of his victims watch videos of older men raping children.

When Gardner was arrested, officers seized his electronic devices and found thousands of indecent images of children, as well as extreme pornography.

Gardner, of Alderley, Skelmersdale, pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child, causing/inciting sexual activity with a child and possessing indecent images of children.

He was sentenced at Preston Crown Court
