A 46-year-old paedophile who had photos of himself engaged in sex acts with dogs and who shared indecent images of children has been jailed.

Jon Page, of Bridge Close, Kensington, was sentenced on Monday (November 27) after a National Crime Agency (NCA) found messages in which he responded enthusiastically to a fantasy about rape and necrophilia involving children.

He used the screen name "wolfpupjohn" as he shared and discussed indecent images of children and was also found to posses 78 images which showed him engaged in sex acts with dogs.

He was also found guilty of possessing class A drugs.

He was sentenced to three and-a-half years imprisonment at Southwark Crown Court after admitting 22 offences relating to indecent images of children, drug possession and bestiality.

NCA officers first arrested Page at his flat in Kensington in February 2016 and released him on bail while his devices were examined.

The computers, mobile phone and external hard drives they seized were found to contain indecent images of children and extreme pornography.

These included 78 images which showed Page engaged in sex acts with dogs.

When NCA officers arrested him at his flat a second time they found the class A drug crystal methamphetamine and the class B drug ketamine.

In July this year, Page pleaded guilty at Westminster Magistrates' Court to charges including 17 of making and distributing indecent images of children, three of bestiality and two of drug possession.

Martin Ludlow, operations manager at the NCA, said: "Jon Page was part of a dangerous community of offenders who produce and share images of child and animal abuse in online chat rooms.

"They think hiding behind a username puts them beyond the reach of law enforcement but they’re wrong.

"Officers at the National Crime Agency and its partners have the investigative and technical skills to find these offenders and bring them before the courts."
