Following his release he was visited by officers from the Sex Offenders Management Unit (SOMU) in September 2016 and they found contact with a 12-year-old boy and further indecent images of children. While on bail in August 2017, he contacted a boy of 14 on Snapchat.

DC Dan Perkins of SOMU said: “Protecting children and from sexual harm is a key priority for us.”
