Irvine man admits persuading girls, 15, into taking part in perverted photoshoot in Ayr

AN Irvine man has admitted enticing underage girls into a bogus modelling shoot.

Vile Frank Collins, of Drumelzier Court, lured two 15-year-old girls to a flat rented under a false name in Ayr in June 2015.

At Ayr Sheriff Court last week, the 46-year-old admitted setting up a Facebook page offering work to the girls to do a modelling shoot.

Thereafter, Collins got the girls to dress up for sexually suggestive photoshoots and offered to pay the teens £50 for taking part.

But the money never arrived and police were contacted.

He pleaded guilty to the charges at court last week and is due to return to the dock in November.

Collins was placed on the Sex Offender’s Register.
