Pervert Colin Garrod, aged 56, of Godfrey Drive, who worked for Trent Barton in Heanor, was jailed for three years and four months at Nottingham Crown Court on March 17.

He pleaded guilty to ten charges under the Sexual Offences Act following his arrest in November, including two of sexual assault, possession of indecent photos of children, taking indecent photos of children and distributing indecent images of children. He also pleaded guilty to two counts of making indecent photos of a child and two charges of voyeurism.

The offences took place over a six year period, between January 2009 and November 2015.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “He was communicating with another user on Skype who was being investigated by another force and there was an exchange of indecent images.”
