A 31-year-old man from Northamptonshire has been jailed for the sexual abuse of a girl under the age of 13.
Gavin McCarthy, from Cransley near Kettering, was sentenced to eight years for six counts of making indecent images of children.
He'll remain on the Sex Offender Register for life.
I hope the substantial sentence McCarthy received today helps serve as a deterrent to offenders and those considering sexual offending against vulnerable children.
We are committed to safeguarding children by detecting abuse and prosecuting offenders.

Nelson Mandela School in Sparkhill have paid tribute to eight-year-old pupil Yuusuf Warsame who died after a grenade attack in Sweden.
As a close school community we are devastated with the death of dear Yuusuf Warsame. Yuusuf was a kind, thoughtful and calm child. He loved learning and was successful because he always gave his best. Yuusuf was a charming boy who gave us all so much happiness. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this tragic time. Azita Zohhadi and Staff.
The eight-year-old was sleeping in the living room of a flat when a hand grenade was thrown inside, detonating at about 3am on Monday.
He had celebrated his birthday two days after flying out with his brothers, sisters and mother to visit relatives in the city of Gothenburg.
The grenade attack which killed 8 year-old Yuusuf Warsame from Birmingham has been linked by Swedish media to a gangland feud which has resulted in a number of incidents.
The schoolboy had been visiting relatives in the Gothenburg suburb of Biskopsgården when the incident happened.
Police are working on the theory that it could be connected to a shooting at a restaurant in another part of Biskopsgarden in 2015.
During that attack, two men were killed and eight others injured in a gang-related conflict.
Local police have been quoted as saying that a man convicted of a fatal shooting last year was registered at the Biskopsgarden address where the attack took place.
The 21-year-old was killed and a 30-year-old British man is fighting for his life after allegedly being stabbed by a French tourist.Read the full story ›
