A former scout leader who raped a child and shared indecent images of children via the Internet, has been jailed for 16 years.

Ian Pain, from Linthouse Lane, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton, was arrested at the home he shared with his parents in June last year.

Police searched Pain's phones and computers and found 3,845 photographs and films of children being abused.

This included 68 level five images - the most extreme in an international evidential scale used by police.
