A former teaching assistant from Pinchbeck jailed for eight years after admitting sex offences against a teenage girl has been called a "predator" by the NSPCC.

Martin Moon (32), of Bridgewater Lane, Pinchbeck, was sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court on Friday having previously pleaded guilty to two charges of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity (read more here).

He also admitted causing or inciting sexual exploitation of a child and causing a child to watch a sexual act, with all charges relating to a period between May 12 and July 28, 2017.

As part of their investigation, police recovered an iPhone from Moon on which was found a total of 386 indecent photographs of children.

An NSPCC spokesman said: “Moon’s despicable actions are a disturbing reminder of the ways that predators can groom vulnerable children into sending indecent photographs of themselves via social media and the internet.

“Young people face a range of risks in the digital world and this case shows how important it is for parents and carers to talk to their children about staying safe online.”
