Convicted paedophile can continue naked Alton Towers trips, rules judge

A convicted paedophile has been told by a judge that he can carry on going on naked trips to the Alton Towers theme park.

The decision has “disappointed” police who wanted to prevent Robert Enright, 51, from mixing with younger members of British Naturism.

Enright, the one-time head of an engineering company, has convictions for indecent assault and the making of indecent photographs of children.

Detectives learned of his involvement with British Naturism after raiding his home and finding details of his membership.

Subsequent enquiries revealed that he had gone on organised trips to both Alton Towers and Waterworld in Stoke-on-Trent.

But Judge Beverley Lunt, sitting at Burnley Crown Court, ruled that that there no evidence he had associated with children under 16. She therefore rejected the prosecution claim that he had breached his sexual offences order

Enright was jailed for 15 months in 2000 after being convicted of one indecent assault charge and 11 offences of making indecent images of children.

The former engineering firm boss took photos of under-age schoolgirls for sexual kicks
