A paedophile who sexually abused four children including a one-year-old baby, and his girlfriend who filmed the horrific attacks, have been jailed.

Mark Gable was arrested in May after police officers found the sick video of him sexually assaulting the baby during a search at his home, as well as videos and photographs of three other young victims.

The 33-year-old and his girlfriend Jessica Fry, 27, have been branded as “dangerous and methodical paedophiles”, after videos showed Gable sexually assaulting the children who had been left in his care by parents.

Fry, who filmed the videos over a period of two years from 2017 to 2019, also featured in one of the videos sexually assaulting a child, reports The Mirror.

Gable admitted four sexual assaults on a child under 13, four counts of taking indecent photographs and three of making indecent photos.

"They worked together not only to abuse very young children, but also documented that abuse for their own gratification.

"Their crimes are horrific - to subject anyone to sexual abuse is abhorrent but when that victim is so young it is unimaginable.

"They are a danger to the public and I am pleased they both now face a significant time behind bars."
