A man from Cambridgeshire has been jailed for using an anonymous online chat site to talk to and film young girls.

Craig Stewart, who is 23, and from Huntingdon was found in possession of hundreds of images and videos of children and teenage girls, some of which he'd met online and secretly recorded their conversations.

Stewart pleaded guilty to possession of indecent photographs of children, making indecent photographs of children, possession of extreme pornographic images, possession of a prohibited image of a child and two counts of inciting girls aged 13-15 to engage in sexual activity.

Stewart was sentenced to two and a half years for inciting children under 16 to engage in penetrative sexual activity and one year for inciting children under 16 to engage in non-penetrative sexual activity.

He received eight months for each of the other charges.

He was also handed a 10 year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

All social media websites present a risk of harm to children, in particular those with web cameras that focus on anonymous chats.

Unfortunately our experience shows that some children are using these sites on a daily basis, often hidden away in their bedrooms without the knowledge of their parents.

The fact is children have no idea who they are talking to and are often vulnerable to the sexual intentions of the other party.

In this particular case, Stewart had manipulated his webcam to hide his identity and incite a large number of children to commit sexual acts on camera
