Paedophile rents out luxury Airbnb for £510-a-night while he lives in caravan in garden

Adam Plant was found guilty of sending sexual messages

A convicted paedophile has been letting out his luxury home to unsuspecting guests on Airbnb – while he lives in a caravan in the garden.

Adam Plant, 42, was convicted earlier this month of groping a 13-year-old girl and sending a string of sexualised texts to her.

However, throughout the police investigation, the dad of two has been earning money letting out his six-bedroom home, huge garden and hot tub.

The property is particularly popular with hen parties and gangs of friends, who were unaware of the sinister crime of the man sleeping in the garden.

And the angry mother of his teenage victim said it is “sickening” to know people are paying to “line the pockets of a convicted paedophile”.

The house, which is in Old Ellerby, East Yorkshire, costs a whopping £510 per night.

According to one recent review, Plant greeted his guests and was “always on hand” as he lives in the caravan on site.

But now, after learning of Plant’s criminal record, Airbnb has removed the property from its listings.

Plant will be sentenced for sexual activity with a girl under 16, engaging in sexual communication with a child and perverting the course of justice later this month.
