A convicted paedophile was caught having a child stay at his home after police spotted children's wellies and a backpack during a surprise visit.
Pervert Christian Tuck-Brown was required to have regular visits from officers and inform them if youngsters would be at his home in Canterbury High Street after being convicted of voyeurism and having indecent photos of children.
But after dropping in unannounced on March 13 last year, police spotted the rubber boots and backpack, leading to suspicions a child had been staying at the property.
Following further investigations which confirmed their fears, Tuck-Brown was arrested on March 26 for breaching his notification requirements.
While there, police found a media stick plugged into his television which contained 41 films and 15 stills showing indecent images of children.
They also discovered a computer tablet he had not declared, in breach of conditions which meant he could only own a computer or phone if the browsing history was available for officers to examine.
The 39-year-old appeared at Canterbury Crown Court on Tuesday after admitting three offences of making indecent images, ten breaches of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and failing to notify police that a child had been staying at his address.
He was jailed for three years and four months.
After the hearing, Dan Webley, an investigator for Kent Police’s team that manages convicted people on the Violent and Sexual Offenders Register (ViSOR), said: "Christian Tuck-Brown has previously been convicted for offences which means he has to adhere very specific rules, aimed at keeping the public safe from him. He was aware of what was required of him yet chose to breach those rules.
"Due to the vigilance of the ViSOR team, Tuck-Brown’s offending was found out and he is now in prison, unable to pose any further risk to the public."
