Paedophile sent naked pictures of himself to boys on Facebook

A man who sent naked pictures of himself to children and young men claimed he was “lonely” when questioned by police.

David Butt, 54, first sent friend requests on Facebook to boys aged between 13 and 20. 

Any who accepted his request would then immediately be sent messages of a sexual nature by Butt, including naked pictures of himself.

Many of the messages contained indications that he would travel in order to meet the boys despite several repeatedly stating they were children.
