A vile pervert who owned a 171-page ‘paedo guide’ has been jailed.

The sick manual was found in married father-of-one Nicholas Simon Smith’s possessions by police when they raided his home in Bollington, Cheshire, in February 2017.

The ‘paedophile manual’ entitled ‘How to Practise Child Love – A Paedo’s Guide’ was amongst the documents recovered.

Aswell as the guide officers found more than 10,000 indecent images of children on a computer and USB sticks.

Smith was jailed for 16 months.
