Paedophile took young boys on trips to Alton Towers before filming himself abusing them


A man who took young boys on trips to Alton Towers before filming himself sexually abusing them has been jailed after police raided a house 50 miles from his home and found the footage.

GMP carried out a search of a property in Wigan and recovered files on a computer of Mark Rosiek abusing young boys.

The search was at the home of another man in Ince Green Lane, Wigan, who was later charged with two counts of sexual activity with a child and possession of indecent images. Mr Hunter has since died.

Rosiek, 35, pleaded guilty to nine counts of sexual activity with children.

He was locked up for six years and eight months and given an indefinite Sexual Offences Prevention Order.

Police learned of Rosiek’s offences in November 2014 when videos were recovered showing him sexually abusing young boys.

The videos were dated between 2012 and 2014.

A boy was identified from the footage and spoke with police in Wigan in November 2015, confirming that he and other young boys were sexually abused by Rosiek.

The boy told police that he and other boys had been taken to Rosiek’s home address on Old Castle Avenue, Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffordshire.
