A man from King's Lynn has been jailed for four years after pleading guilty to a string of sexual offences involving children.

24-year-old Michael Hudson-Thomas confessed to a number of offences, including possessing and distributing indecent images of children.

He also arranged for a child to be present while another man performed a sexual act on a web cam.

"This is one of the worst cases I have ever seen with Hudson-Thomas using technology to distribute extremely pornographic images, some of which were at the highest end of the offence scale.

This disturbing case is all the more serious when seen in the context of Michael's wider internet usage which saw the offender playing out his unacceptable fantasies online.

During the sentencing hearing he was described by the judge as a significant risk to members of the public.”
