A pervert grandad who sent indecent pictures of himself to paedophile hunters masquerading as young teen girls has been jailed for 18 months.
Neil Peters, 64, was told repeatedly by one decoy kid that she was 13 yet he still angled the conversation towards sex and said things like "I'd marry you in a heartbeat" and be "I'd be honoured to be your boyfriend".
Pervert Peters then sent her indecent photos, but warned they should keep the sordid chat secret or they would both "get into trouble".

And in trouble he is, because he was actually speaking to adults from vigilante groups called Dank Dragons and Improved Maximum Exposure.
Glasgow Live reported he made the admissions of love to 'Tia' while Peters told another non-existent girl 'Lucy' that she was "gorgeous" and demanded topless photos.
He had arranged to meet Lucy outside a Morrisons while she wore her school uniform. He even asked if she could wear stockings instead of tights as he preferred them.
He was confronted by the vigilantes when he arrived to meet her in his Audi. They streamed the bust live on Facebook.
Peters, of Larkhall, appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court and admitted communicating indecently with both decoys in August last year.
He also pleaded guilty to attempting to meet one to engage in sexual activity.

Sheriff John Speir jailed first offender Peters and placed him on the Sex Offenders' Register for 10 years.
Sheriff Speir told Peters a custodial sentence was "inevitable".
In the footage he pleads to be allowed to leave but he was later arrested by police.
"Whilst awaiting police arrival, the group broadcast a live stream of the sting on Facebook," depute fiscal Chloe O'Hara said in a hearing last month.
"During this the accused made several admissions including sending indecent images of himself to Lucy, said he thought she looked older but she told him she was 14, stated he was going to take her to Burger King and said 'I'm sorry, I should never have done it'."
