A PAEDOPHILE who took naked pictures of himself posing with a toddler was jailed indefinitely on Monday.

Bryn Bowen, 43, of Herbert Road, Plumstead, also preyed on two 14-year-old boys while building up a vile collection of 200,000 child porn images.

The married dad groomed the two young teens in an internet chatroom by lying about his age.

He also sent a fellow pervert the nude snaps of him and a two-year-old, Woolwich Crown Court heard.

Detectives who raided Bowen's home found thousands of sordid photos of children being raped, tortured and engaging in acts of bestiality stored on his computers.

Prosecutor Anita Arora said Bowen pretended to be 15 in a chat room called Teen Chat to snare his first victim.

"They had talks of an explicit sexual nature on whether he liked boys or liked girls," she said.

"He went around to the boy's home address and it is right that there was sexual activity between them."

The pervert even photographed himself molesting the unnamed boy.

Bowen struck again when he combed the same chatroom for another innocent victim.

He had sex with the 14-year-old after inviting him to his marital home.

He also posed naked with a third victim, aged just two-years, and then sent the sick images to his paedophile pal in Somerset.

Passing sentence, Judge Michael Carroll said: "I am absolutely satisfied that you represent a high risk of serious harm to members of the public, in this case children."

Bowen admitted preying on the boys between October 2007 and August last year as well as 24 child porn charges.

He must serve a minimum of five years behind bars before a parole board sanction his release.

He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders' register for life.
