AR­REST

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Prolific Paedophile Jailed For Life -

The Na­tional Crime Agency ar­rested Huckle at Gatwick air­port, where they found a cam­era, phone and com­puter with 20,000 images of child abuse in his lug­gage.

NCA head of op­er­a­tions Tony Cook de­scribed Huckle as a “lone of­fender” who had used a pseu­do­nym and stated he was liv­ing in In­dia in or­der to cover his tracks.

Mr Cook said Huckle used an elec­tronic ledger to give him­self a points score for his level of abuse per vic­tim.

Mr Cook said: “This goes to show the scale of de­prav­ity. There is no doubt the quan­tity this of­fend­ing would have in­creased had he not been ar­rested.

“He is only 30 years of age so we can only imag­ine what sort of of­fend­ing he had in front of him.”
