Investigating officer Detective Constable Jeanine Atkins-Calver, said: ‘Mark Gable and Jessica Fry are dangerous and methodical paedophiles. They worked together not only to abuse very young children, but also documented that abuse for their own gratification.
‘Their crimes are horrific – to subject anyone to sexual abuse is abhorrent but when that victim is so young it is unimaginable. They are a danger to the public and I am pleased they both now face a significant time behind bars.’
