Man used two daughters 'as bait'
A paedophile used his two daughters to lure their young friends to his home where they were drugged, assaulted and photographed, a court has heard. Glyn Martin, 53, of Bessingby Gate, Bridlington, East Yorkshire, had more than 6,000 indecent pictures of young girls when police raided his house.
On Tuesday, Martin admitted 57 counts of indecent assault, child abduction and indecency with children.
The judge adjourned the hearing at Hull Crown Court until Wednesday.
Earlier, the court was told that police found on undeveloped rolls of film a further 12,000 indecent images of young girls, involving 1,100 further victims.
The girls photographed were between the ages of two and 12 and the pictures were taken between the mid-1980s and 2003.
Opening the prosecution case, Michael Harrison QC said Martin became the legal guardian of two girls in 1991.
"His appearance as a caring father with two young daughters was a successful strategy that enabled him to indecently assault their friends."
Martin used his job as a face-painter on Bridlington sea front to take hundreds of pictures of children playing in public, the court heard.
In 1993, he became a school governor in Doncaster where he set up a gym club which he also used to take indecent pictures of young girls.
A year later he bought a number of properties in Bridlington, where he placed adverts in newspapers appealing for young girls to befriend his daughters.
Mr Harrison said nine youngsters were taken back to his home for overnight stays where he abused them.
The abuse was only discovered when builders refurbishing one of his properties found a list recording his crimes.
Martin had kept a diary of his crimes, detailed notes and diagrams depicting young girls.
The victims, who he abducted primarily during the mid 1990s, had little idea of the abuse they had suffered after they were drugged.

Good, one more nasty man off the streets to harm our little ones. I actually would like to see more articles of these type of flesh caught and subjected to authority and the laws of our land.
