Paedophile jailed indefinitely

A paedophile described as the UK's most prolific hoarder of child abuse images has been sentenced to an indeterminate prison term.

Daniel Taylor, 31, had more than 300,000 indecent images. Judge Rodney Grant, at Bradford Crown Court, said Taylor posed a danger to children and ordered he serve a minimum of three years before he can be considered for release. A report described him as "opportunistic and predatory".

Taylor, of Farnley, Leeds, admitted 27 charges, including making and possessing indecent images and sexually assaulting a baby.
