A dangerous paedophile has been jailed for nearly 12 years after posting horrific videos of himself raping a young boy.

Aiden Foster, aged 22, from Wednesbury, made a series of child sexual abuse videos which we shared on the social media site Discord.

Foster was arrested at his home address on May 6 this year after the National Crime Agency worked with US law enforcement agencies and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to help identify him.

NCA operations manager, Holly Triggs, said: “Aiden Foster is a dangerous offender who conducted the most horrific abuse against children.

“Chat logs showed he revelled in the ability to share material online – an act that will no doubt have contributed to the normalisation of such abuse among other paedophiles.

“The NCA is dedicated to combatting this global threat, working tirelessly to protect children and ensure that high harm offenders like Foster are put behind bars.”

Officers recovered 771 indecent images of children from four of his devices and also found an Instagram chat in which Foster requested pictures from a 14-year-old.

He pleaded guilty to 24 offences, including rape of a child under 13, at Wolverhampton Crown Court on August 8.

He was sentenced to 11 years and seven months in prison with a further four years on license at the same court today (Wednesday, November 22).

He is also subject to a sexual harm prevention order and will remain on the sex offenders register for life.
