A man and a woman exploited a seven-year-old girl and involved her in pornography worldwide.

Michael Kinnear and Caroline Shaw took obscene pictures of the little girl and distributed them a court was told.

Kinnear, 48, who gave his last known address as Fairfield Avenue, Blackpool, and Caroline Shaw, 29, formerly of Thornton Road, Morecambe, now living in Meldon Road, Morecambe, pleaded guilty to inciting a seven-year-old girl to be involved in pornography worldwide.

They also admitted offences of possessing and distributing indecent pictures, some at the highest level of indecency, of children.

Shaw further pleaded guilty to taking an indecent picture of a child and ill-treating a child.

All the offences took place at Morecambe between October last year and May this year.

Prosecutor Malcolm Isherwood said: “The case involves the taking and making of indecent images of children.

“They exploited a seven-year-old child, photographs were taken of her and distributed.”

The prosecution opposed bail for Kinnear.

The defendants were ordered to appear for sentence at Preston Crown Court on August 12 by Blackpool magistrates.

Kinnear was remanded in custody and Shaw was bailed.

Two brothers who dubbed themselves “The Paedophile Squad” have been jailed for trying to extort £1,000 from a convicted child sex offender they snared through Grindr.

Ryan Jones, 27, and Elliot Jones, 24, both of Ascension Road, Romford, targeted a man in his 50s on the dating app.

They convinced him to meet up with a 14-year-old boy in Collier Row in April last year. When he turned up, they announced they were “The Paedophile Squad” and demanded £1,000.

After taking him to a bank, the man flagged down a police car and all three were arrested.

A jury at the Old Bailey convicted the brothers of blackmail today and sentenced them both to two-and-a-half years in jail.

After the verdict, it was revealed Elliot Jones was himself convicted last month of trying to incite a child into sexual activity in October 2013.

Judge Charles Wide said the prosecution hadn’t been told about the conviction until the trial had begun – too late for it to be used as evidence.

He ordered an investigation into the handling of the case, having also been told one of the brothers allegedly asked the man to drop the charges – information police failed to follow up on.

Sentencing them, he said: “You deliberately targeted someone pretty much at random using Grindr, who you knew would be vulnerable.”

The judge attacked Elliot Jones for an “utterly bogus” defence, having hidden from the jury he had been convicted of a child sex offence himself.

It also emerged Elliot Jones served a three and a half year sentence for a racist attack on a mosque in Ilford in 2011.

The man in his 50s admitted attempting to groom a 14-year-old over the incident and will be sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court later this month.

15-year-old Paige Chivers vanished eight years ago

15-year-old Paige Chivers vanished eight years ago

A neo-Nazi paedophile has been found guilty of murdering a school girl who vanished eight years ago.

Paige Chivers, 15, disappeared in Blackpool in 2007 following a row with her father. Her body has never been discovered.

Robert Ewing, 60, murdered the schoolgirl after developing an “inappropriate sexual interest” in her, Preston Court heard.

Ewing was also found guilty of perverting the course of justice by intimidating witnesses and providing false information to the police.

Fellow defendant Gareth Dewhurst, 46, was found guilty of perverting the course of justice and helping Ewing dispose of Paige’s body. He was cleared of the charge that he had had sex with her dead body after Ewing killed her.

Paige, who was described as “very troubled and vulnerable” packed two carrier bags with clothes and set off from the family home following the fight with her father. Later that day she was seen at a bus stop talking to an older man, believed to be Ewing.

Forensics found bloodstains containing blood from Ewing and Paige inside Ewing’s flat in 2007. However, he was not charged until last year.

The jury heard that Dewhurst had confessed to a 16-year-old boy whilst he was “heavily stoned” his involvement in the girl’s disappearance. He told the boy that Ewing had killed Paige and then made him have sex with her dead body before forcing him to use his car to dispose of her remains.

The court heard that a fortnight before Paige went missing, Ewing contacted the police with an anonymous tip that a “problem child” had turned up on his doorstep after being evicted by her father. Prosecutors said this was a calculated move to “test the water” and gauge police response. There had been “very little reaction” by officials.

In recordings made by the police, Ewing described himself as a “neo-Nazi”.

Det Supt Andy Webster, who led the investigation, told the Blackpool Gazette: “Paige Chivers was a vulnerable 15-year-old child who disappeared in August 2007.

“The court heard how Robert Ewing carefully groomed Paige before murdering her at his flat in Bispham, Blackpool.

“The prosecution case has been largely circumstantial as Paige’s body has never been recovered. A fundamental part of the prosecution case was that Paige was last seen alive with Robert Ewing, alone in his flat at teatime on Friday August 24, 2007.

“After this point there were no other corroborated sightings of her. Her blood was later found in his flat.

“When she was reported missing he failed to assist the police and then repeatedly lied to them. He has repeatedly sought to implicate other vulnerable people in her murder.

“The jury accepted that his co-accused, Gareth Dewhurst, disposed of Paige’s body and then sought to intimidate and harass witnesses. This included a family to whom he had confessed and who he subsequently sought to terrify.”

Speaking after the sentencing, Paige’s brother-in-law Robert McClelland said that “not a day goes past” when the family does not think about her.

He described Paige as a “bright and funny” girl, adding: “We all have holes in our hearts that can never be replaced.”

The court heard that a police error was made when Paige was reported missing by her father on 26 August, three days after her disappearance. He clearly stated that his daughter was a fifteen year old girl, but her date of birth was wrongly entered as 1962 instead of 1992. This meant that police thought they were investigating the disappearance of a 45 year old woman who had moved away voluntarily, rather than a child missing from home. The error was not corrected until 7 September.

The handling of the case is now being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Ewing and Dewhurst will both be sentenced on 28 July.

The Independent

A man has been found guilty of murdering missing Blackpool teenager Paige Chivers.

The body of the 15-year-old, who was reported missing in August 2007, has never been found.

Robert Ewing, 60, denied murder but was convicted of killing her by a jury at Preston Crown Court.

Co-defendant Gareth Dewhurst, 46, of Duncan Avenue, Bispham was cleared of a serious sexual offence but convicted of helping dispose of Paige’s body.

‘Inappropriate interest’

Ewing of Kincraig Place, Bispham, was also found guilty of perverting the course of justice by intimidating witnesses and laying false trails.

This included an anonymous phone call to police about a “problem child” he said had turned up on his doorstep.

He had an “inappropriate sexual interest” in the teenager and took advantage of her chaotic upbringing, the court was told.

Vital days were lost in the search for Paige due to her age being wrongly logged by police as 45 instead of 15.

They did not investigate for 12 days as they had recorded her year of birth as 1962.

Her age was not corrected until 7 September 2007 when police started their inquiries into her disappearance.

Lancashire Police accepted the error and voluntarily referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Paige was reported missing three days after leaving her home

Blood spots matching Paige’s DNA were found at the flat Ewing lived at the time, on All Hallows Road, Bispham, Blackpool.

Ewing claimed they came from a cut on Paige’s arm which he had treated.

However, no other blood was found at the flat and a piece of carpet had been removed from the flat shortly after the teenager’s disappearance.

Ewing claimed he replaced it because his cat had urinated on it.

Ewing also made entries in his diary which the prosecution said related to sexual acts with Paige.

‘Fun loving kid’

After the verdicts were returned, her brother said in a statement: “Paige was a fun loving kid, she was bright and funny. She was only a child when our mum passed away in 2007. It was so hard on us all at the time and I would go as far as to say it broke us.”

He described Paige as “bonny” and “outgoing” and said they thought that she was “just out with mates” when she disappeared.

But “days turned into weeks, weeks into months and months into years.”

He added: “We used to go out in the car looking for Paige and sometimes do a ‘double take’ when we saw some girls and anyone similar to her. We would drive around the block and check again, raising our hopes only to be let down again, you never stop looking.

“I’m concerned that I will never know what her last words were, if she was in any pain or even if I will find out what actually went on the days she went missing.

“I hope and pray that the people responsible tell us where she is so we can lay her to rest. This will at least give us some closure and maybe stop any nightmares, images and worry about where she is.”

A vigilante with “a loathing for sex offenders” headbutted a suspected paedophile after using a fictional 14-year-old girl to lure him into a trap.

Andrew O’Neill arrived in Wigan town centre expecting to meet the teenage school girl he had been grooming via an online dating website and go to a hotel with her.

But the girl did not exist and his increasingly sexualised comments to the teenager were in fact being answered by a vigilante group.

When he got to Market Place in Wigan he was met by a waiting gang who filmed the attack by one of them, Daniel Holding.

The video was then posted on Facebook with the tag “NWI Nonce Busters”, referring to the right-wing group, the North West Infidels.

Holding, who headbutted him, cracking two of his teeth, was today jailed for eight months.

Judge Mark Brown told 25-year-old Holding: “The state cannot permit individuals to take the law into their own hands whatever the motives might be. Vigilante behaviour such as this cannot be tolerated.

“This was not a situation in which you sought to detect a sex offender and just report him to the police. You met him the Wigan town centre and imposed retribution upon him when you head butted him causing serious injuries to his mouth.

“You may have a loathing for sex offenders but I am satisfied this gave you the opportunity to use violence for what you perceived to be justifiable reasons.

“You described your actions in the street as ‘paedo hunting’ and ‘nonce busting’.”

The judge pointed out that Holding has previous convictions for violence and has breached court orders.

Holding, of Bridge’s Street, Atherton, pleaded guilty to assaulting 25-year-old O’Neill, causing actual bodily harm.

Lianne Birkett, prosecuting, told Liverpool Crown Court that the area of the attack was busy at the time of the attack in April and two witnesses contacted the police.

Holding was also clearly visible in the video posted on Facebook and he was arrested the next day.

O’Neill, of no fixed abode, was jailed for 12 months for grooming by a judge last month.

Shaun Jones, 19, of Haydn Road, West Derby, jailed for nine years for sex attacks on girl, 12,

Shaun Jones, 19, of Haydn Road, West Derby, jailed for nine years for sex attacks on girl, 12,

A Merseyside army cadet sergeant who groomed, exploited and raped a vulnerable 12-year-old schoolgirl was today jailed for nine years.

Predator Shaun Jones manipulated and humiliated his child victim as he carried out a string of vile sex attacks when he was aged 17.

Jones, of Haydn Road, West Derby, was today locked up on his 19th birthday after admitting a raft of 20 sex offence charges.

Liverpool Crown Court heard how Jones’s victim became “infatuated” and “obsessed” after he put her “under his spell”.

Judge David Aubrey, QC, said: “You took away her innocence, you took away her childhood, you took away her virginity.

“You sexually assaulted her in a variety of different ways over a period of time.

“I am quite satisfied that you were manipulating her and were doing so for your own sexual gratification.”

The court heard how Jones made the girl perform sex acts upon him, raped her, and indecently attacked the youngster in public.

He also demanded the girl send x-rated images and video of herself, and sent explicit ones in return.

The youngster told police that Jones had made her “fall in love” with him, even though she “didn’t want to be”.

She told officers: “I knew it wasn’t right. I knew I shouldn’t be doing it but I became obsessed with him.”

The girl also said she blamed herself and believed what happened to her was her own fault.

But Judge Aubrey said: “She was wrong about that. It wasn’t her fault at all.

“It was yours, in consequence of your grooming, your exploitation.

“That observation by her illustrates the psychological harm and the scars you have left.

“She was the victim, you were the perpetrator.”

The court heard that the girl was undergoing counselling and had become withdrawn, often locking herself in her bedroom.

Judge Aubrey said she had suffered “everlasting and permanent” damage.

Robert Wyn Jones, defending, said Jones was remorseful and had tried to take his life while on remand in prison.

He said his client had “excelled” while in the cadets.

Mr Wyn Jones said: “He tells me there have been suicide attempts while at Altcourse, so to a degree he is a vulnerable young man.

“But I can’t press that too far because he initiated the relationship and persisted in it.

“He has asked me to apologise on his behalf.”

Jones was also indefinitely banned from associating with children and changing his name under the terms of a sexual harm prevention order.
