A WIGAN internet pervert, who had sex with a schoolgirl he met through a Dr Who fan site, has been caged.

Darren Owen, a father-of-two, travelled from his home in Ashton to Northampton to meet the 15-year-old.

Northampton Crown Court heard her parents were shocked when he turned up at the house because he was much older than they expected.

But after Owen, 39, and the girl went for a walk, the pair ended up having sex.

The court heard the offence came to light when Owen contacted the girl’s headmaster because she was being bullied and admitted they were sexually active.

The police were called in and he was arrested.

Owen, of Bevington Crescent, Ashton, pleaded guilty to three offences of sexual activity with a child.

Judge Ian Alexander QC jailed him for two years

He told the defendant the sentence had been reduced by half because of his honesty.
