Huckle, of Coverdale, Gateshead, who was repeatedly told during the online chats that he was talking to 14-year-olds, was arrested at his home.

Now the 23-year-old has been jailed for 20 months after he admitted attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity and breaching a sexual harm prevention order imposed for the offence last year.
Judge Robert Adams ordered him to sign the sex offenders register and abide by a new sexual harm prevention order for ten years.

The judge told him: “In both cases you persisted with conversation with people you believed were 14, repeatedly being told they were 14 and discussing penetrative sexual activity with them.”
