A "depraved" man who pleaded guilty to raping a child under 13 has been jailed for 17 years.

Martyn Frost, 48, admitted three counts of raping a child under 13 and causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

The judge at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court said he was "depraved" for prioritising his "sexual gratification".

Frost, of London Road in the city, also admitted making and possessing indecent images of children.

Sentencing Frost, Judge Paul Glenn said: "When I read the case papers I had an overwhelming sense of revulsion.

"You derived enjoyment from the vile material you watched and the other items recovered from your address."
