A registered sex offender from Timperley has been jailed for 5 years after pleading guilty to making indecent images of children
Several devices were seized from eighty-seven years of Peter Waterworth’s address following his arrest on June 23, 2020 for an unrelated affair, and a series of manipulated images – of boys and girls – were found on his laptop and cell phone.
His internet history also revealed that Waterworth had visited a number of websites related to teenage girls and had installed photo editing software.
Detective Inspector Helen Bagnall of the Trafford CID said: “Peter Waterworth posed a significant threat to children, actively seeking out obscene images of children and editing them.
“Once he has served his prison sentence, which he rightly deserves, he will continue to be registered as a lifelong sex offender with a warrant for the prevention of sexual assault indefinitely.”
