Pictures reveal inside of would-be child cannibal's dungeon

Geoffrey Portway faces up to 27 years prison

US police have released photographs of the makeshift dungeon where a British man plotted to rape, murder and eat a child.

Geoffrey Portway, 40, faces up to 27 years in prison, after he admitted soliciting the kidnap of a child and distribution and possession of child pornography as part of a plea agreement in May.

He is expected to be sentenced next Tuesday, NBC News affiliate, WHDH reports.

In 2012, investigators entered Mr Portway's home with a search warrant, after linking him to an internet chatroom where he chatted with other men about cannibalisation and child rape.
