A “dangerous” sex offender who “is a capable groomer and manipulator of vulnerable people” was jailed for four years for breaching a number of orders.

Aaron Goosey, of Sheepwalk, Paston, Peterborough, was listed on the sex offenders register and subject to a sexual harm prevention order put in place to monitor his behaviour whilst in the community.

Officers had reason to believe the 36-year-old was in breach of the order and a warrant was executed at his home on February 2.

They discovered an iPad containing images of two young children he had taken without permission and a laptop hidden under his mattress.

Goosey was also found to be using Facebook and Twitter under false names.
