Rapist had a million images of child porn

By Rod Minchin

A pensioner who was caught with more than one million pornographic images of children has been jailed for 19 years after admitting abusing young girls.

John Bidmead (65) was caught red handed by police as he watched a child abuse movie, which was being streamed via his computer onto a 50-inch television, when they knocked on his door with a warrant to arrest him.

There was so much indecent material found on his computers that police stopped counting when they reached 640,000 but detectives believe the total is more than one million.

Exeter Crown Court heard that the haul includes films Bidmead had made of himself raping and abusing two young girls.

Bidmead, of Rull Lane, Cullompton, Devon, admitted four rapes and four indecent or sexual assaults on one girl and two sexual assaults on a second from 2001 to 2007. He also pleaded guilty to making indecent photos and movies.
