Paedophile case: 'It's been extremely disturbing'

A paedophile who police believe is the UK's most prolific collector of child abuse images has been given an indeterminate jail sentence.

Daniel Taylor, 31, of Farnley, Leeds had more than 300,000 images of abuse and pleaded guilty to 27 offences.

At Bradford Crown Court, he admitted 20 counts of making indecent images, four of taking indecent images and two counts of sexual assault on a baby.

Detective Chief Superintendent Martyn Bates of Yorkshire Organised Crime Unit said that the case had been "extremely disturbing" for the officers working on it.
