After finding the images, police rearrested him, seized further CDs from his flat and interviewed the youngsters.

The first girl described how Mather would play games, messaging her via Skype, with ‘dares’. The dares included him kissing her.

When she wanted to stop he bribed her with cake to allow him to carry on. An investigation of his computers found browsing terms relating to child abuse.

Judge Andrew Woolman said it was not a straightforward sentencing exercise and adjourned his sentencing decision to December 13.
