A paedophile who had thousands of indecent images of children and discussed raping kids has been jailed. 

Tyler Charter, 35, of Windsor House in Croydon, was jailed for six and a half years on Thursday (May 23) for arranging or facilitating a child sex offence and possession of indecent images of children. 

Intelligence from the National Crime Agency (NCA) showed Charter was suspected of grooming young children. 

The Met Police launched an investigation which found 4,233 images and videos of children on Charter’s Telegram account. 

Officers also found conversations discussing the abuse of young children, some as young as three years old. 

When he was arrested in September 2022 he was seen trying to dispose of evidence on his devices before officers quickly stepped in and seized them.

“This successful operation serves as a testament to the dedication of Met officers in utilising data and technology to serve and protect our communities. 

“Safeguarding of children and prevention of these horrible crimes is a top priority and we continue to work with parents and carers to help children spot the signs of online grooming or exploitation."
