A man has been jailed for a total of 13 years after he filmed himself raping a four-year-old girl.

Brett Deane, 28, from Welland Road, Dogsthorpe, Peterborough, was caught after police were alerted that images of sexual abuse were being posted online.

Deane was arrested the following day and seized his mobile phone.

Officers also discovered explicit drawings depicting a man raping two children labelled as being aged 11 and 12.

Deane, was charged with 10 counts comprising: two counts of raping a girl under 13; four of serious sexual assault and taking, making, possessing and distributing an indecent photograph of a child.

He pleaded guilty to all charges yesterday (Tuesday) and was jailed for a total of 13 years.

Detective Sergeant Amerjit Singh, of the force's Public Protection Department, said: "It is almost impossible to comprehend such an horrific act of attacking a young child who had no way of defending herself.

"Deane did not give a moment's thought to what impact his actions will have on such a young victim who will, no doubt, be haunted by this abuse for many years to come."
