A West Cumbrian man described by a judge as a menace to young children has been jailed for 12 months.

Garry Davies was sentenced yesterday for downloading child porn images off the internet, including one depicting the rape of a three-year-old child.

But the 48-year-old, of Woodside, Broughton Moor, has twice previously served prison sentences for indecent assaults – one of them on an 11-year-old girl.

Judge Paul Batty QC, sitting at Carlisle Crown Court, said the child sexual abuse images Davies had downloaded were of a revolting and disgusting nature.
