Paedophile caretaker walks free from court

A perverted caretaker who lives yards from a special school has avoided jail after admitting he collected more than 1,000 indecent images of children.

Harry Cowling, 59, downloaded the images onto his home computer even though he knew they were ‘disgusting, horrific and wrong.’

At Southwark Crown Court, Judge Michael Gledhill QC told him: ‘You should be wholly ashamed of yourself’ but gave the pervert a 12 month sentence suspended for two years.
