Paedophile Daniel Salisbury jailed for four years after being arrested at Cobham services

By Ed McConnell

A paedophile has been jailed after arranging to meet up with a teenage girl at a service station.

But Daniel Salisbury's victim was actually a police officer and when the 31-year-old turned up at Cobham Services on November 16 officers from the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit pounced.

The 31-year, of Rotary Gardens, Gillingham, was found guilty of arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence at Guildford Crown Court on Wednesday.

He was also found to be in breach of a sexual harm prevention order and was sentenced to 16 months’ imprisonment to run concurrently.

That order had been imposed after he was found in possession of indecent images of children in 2014.

Salisbury was placed on the sex offenders’ register indefinitely and was subject to a further sexual harm prevention order to run in line with his registration period.

SEROCU's detective Inspector Emily Evans said: “This investigation forms part of our continued priority to protect children from sexual exploitation from those who seek to do them harm.

"The sentence reflects the seriousness of the offences Daniel Salisbury had attempted to commit.

“If anyone has been a victim of child sexual abuse, I would urge you to report it to your local police force via 101.

"We will always follow up allegations of abuse, no matter when they occurred.

"Victims can talk in confidence to experienced investigators and we can also help them get access to a range of other support services."
