An NHS nurse dubbed "the Canterbury Cannibal" has been sentenced to nine years in prison after being convicted of sexual grooming after plotting to behead and eat a girl.
Dale Bolinger, 58, bought an axe from a DIY store, the day before he tried to meet the 14-year-old, whom he groomed had online.
He had chatted with the teenager, a Mexican girl called "Eva" said to be living in Germany, online.
In conversations, Bolinger described sex acts he wanted to perform on her and how he would murder her, which she said she wanted to happen.
As he was jailed today for a total of 11 offences, a judge said his behaviour was "abhorrent, shocking and dangerous".
