Paedo, 70, is sent to prison for life

Local 13BRITISH paedophile Mark Frost, aged 70, who was arrested in Alicante last week and extradited to the UK, has been jailed for life at the Old Bailey and warned that he will probably die in prison.

The former teacher was initially identified when a contact in the Netherlands, arrested for owning child pornography, had a video of Frost abusing children in Thailand.

The pensioner, who had been a teacher for a number of years, as well as a scout leader, admitted 45 sex offences against nine children in Thailand between 2009 and 2012 and two British pupils in the Nineties.

These offences including rape, sexual assault and inciting sexual activity with a child under 13. His victims were aged between 10-15. Judge Mark Lucraft said his crimes were “the most appalling catalogue of sexual abuse”.

He added: “It is clear you have an obsession with sexually abusing young boys with evidence of planning and grooming. “Your conduct towards each and every one of these victims is horrific and deeply disturbing.”

He added that Frost was someone who would continue to pose a risk to children.

The court heard how Frost raped impoverished Asian boys and encouraged them to engage in sex acts after grooming them with cash and sweets.

He was also found guilty of abusing children at his school.

Ruona Iguyovwe, from the state’s Crown Prosecution Service, said: “The harrowing evidence presented by the prosecution in this case outlined the suffering that Mark Frost caused to his victims.

“Over many years, Frost repeatedly exploited vulnerable young victims, both in the UK and in Thailand, for his own sexual gratification.

“His offending has caused severe psychological harm to all the children he abused, many of whom are now old enough to realise the enormity of what happened to them.”
