A man described by police as "horrendous and perverted" has been jailed for 10 years for "prolific" sex offences against children.

Jason Paske, 40, formerly of Yate, Bristol, was sentenced at York Crown Court after pleading guilty to 26 charges,

These included making and distributing indecent images of children.

He was investigated by North Yorkshire Police and Avon and Somerset Constabulary after his arrest in 2014.
