Man jailed for child sex offences

A  man`s been jailed for more than three years at Peterborough Crown Court after he admitted sexually assaulting on a boy and a string of indecent image offences.

Matthew Ward was also handed a 10-year sexual harm prevention order which means he`ll be monitored on his release and be under tight restrictions.

The 31 year old was arrested in February after a police raid on his home in Ramsey.

Officers seized data storage devices which were found to contain indecent images of children.

They also found indecent footage of two young boys on his mobile phone taken covertly inside a public toilet at a London theatre. The boys have never been identified.

Images and footage taken from other devices revealed Ward had sexually assaulted a boy.

Ward pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a boy under 13, two counts of taking indecent images of children, two counts of possessing indecent images of children (relating to 217 images and videos) and two counts of making indecent images of children (relating to 731 images and videos).

DC Steve Martin, who investigated, said:  These are very serious offences, which include creating his own indecent images, and this is reflected in the sentence.

Ward is clearly a danger to children but the sexual harm prevention order means he will have restrictions on his movements on release and will be closely monitored by police.
