A former DJ who worked as an actor and singer has been jailed for 27 months after he tried to incite young girls to get involved in sexual activity online.

Andrew Welsh, 29, believed he was talking to a girl aged 13 but he was speaking to a police officer.

He had highly sexualised conversations with another girl aged 14 in Bulgaria – police found 1,500 messages over five months.

Welsh, a volunteer with Tudno FM, who took part in the opening of the London Olympics, sent images of himself including his manhood and persuaded the teenage girl to send him videos of herself.

Mold Crown Court heard in chat rooms he discussed the abuse, torture, mutilation and murder of young girls.

His barrister Jonathan Austin stressed it was purely fantasy.

He had been involved with music in public as a DJ on a local radio station, in theatre and in charity events with youngsters and there had never been any suggestion that he had behaved in-appropriately, Mr Austin said.

Judge Niclas Parry jailed Welsh, of Peulwys Avenue in Old Colwyn,as well as jailing Welsh, made him subject of a sexual harm prevention order and ordered to register with the police as a sex offender for ten years, after he admitted making indecent images of children by downloading them, distributing images, and two charges of attempting to incite children to engage in sexual activity..
