A PERVERT who had a stash of sickening internet child porn videos showing babies in nappies being raped has been jailed for a year.

Phillip Greenwood (60) was caught with the vile collection of filthy downloaded films and clips after police turned up at his house in January. As officers started to seize computer equipment, he handed them a USB stick and told them: “I won’t waste your time. I will give you this. There’s things on there that I shouldn’t have been looking at,” Burnley Crown Court heard.

The hearing was told the defendant had at least 75 indecent videos of children, five of them at the most serious level. Greenwood had been looking up ways of destroying the evidence on his computer.

Greenwood, of Mizpah Street, Burnley, had admitted 21 offences of making an indecent image of a child and had been committed for sentence by Pennine magistrates. He was ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for 10 years, was banned from working with children for life and was given a sexual offences prevention order, restricting his computer use.
