Pervert with 4,000 indecent images of kids jailed for 43 months

A pervert snared with more than 4,000 indecent images of kids was jailed for 43 months.

John Bambridge, 40, also had children’s underwear hidden in his garage.

Bambridge was caught by police after a tip off in September this year.

They found two phones and an iPad which contained indecent images.

One of the images described in court was of a baby as young as “eight weeks old”.

Also discovered were other images of young girls and animals performing sex acts on adults.

Officers found underwear for “young children” hidden in a box in his garage.

Bambridge plead guilty last month at Glasgow Sheriff Court to possessing and permitting indecent photographs of children.

Bambridge, from Glasgow’s Broomhouse area, was jailed for by Sheriff Alan Mackenzie and put on the sex offenders register for an indefinite period of time.

Bambridge also admitted to behaving in a threatening and abusive manner by exchanging messages expressing interest in raping and torturing babies and children.

Bambridge used an app to communicate with fellow “perverts” to discuss what they would do to children in “school uniform.”
