Oldest paedophile: man 92 caught trying to rape an 11yr old girl

This is the sickening moment a 92-year-old man tries to meet an 11-year-old girl for sex – before he is snared by online vigilantes.

RAF veteran Ivor Gifford now faces jail after he was trapped by The Hunted One group outside a station where he had arranged to meet the fictional girl.

The pensioner pervert had told the girl to “wear something sexy”.

When questioned by cops, he revealed how he had learned to use Internet chat rooms to meet young girls for sex after his 68-year-old wife had died in 2014.

He began chatting to what he thought were two girls – Jessie, 11, and Jodie, 12 – online but was actually talking to vigilantes.

When he tried to meet the fictional girl at Llanhilleth Railway Station near Abertillery, South Wales, he was confronted by the group, which targets child groomers.

Gifford, the oldest paedophile in Britain to have been caught by The Hunted One, told police after his arrest: “I hope I die before this is out. I know how my family will react.”

It was filmed and the court was shown him arriving at the railway station in a taxi when he is called over by the hunters.

One of them can be heard saying to Gifford: “You’re 81 years older than this child.

“We catch a load of guys – you’re the oldest, it’s unbelievable. When we found out your age, we were shocked.”

The video clip ends with police arriving and leading Gifford into their car.

Gifford, of Abertillery, denied two charges of attempting to incite a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity, and attempting to meet a child.

A jury rejected his claims that he believed the girls to be much older and found him guilty.

He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on June 2.

Prosecutor Owen Williams said: “He was persistent in his attempts. In over 100 pages of messages, you will see that the vast majority refer to a sexual act.

“Mr Gifford graphically describes sexual acts. He sent images of himself naked.”

Mr Williams told how The Hunted One create the phoney profiles but never begin conversations themselves and instead wait for others to speak to them first.
