A bingo hall worker who asked a 13-year-old girl to send explicit photos then made plans to have sex with her in a park has been jailed for almost two years.
Christopher Gamlin, 47, asked the teenager to send him photographs of her breasts, send her explicit images of himself and made plans for them to have sex.
Cardiff Crown Court heard Gamlin was caught by a paedophile hunter group called Keeping Kids Safe when one of their members set up an online account pretending to be a child and he started a sexually explicit conversation with them.
The court heard Gamlin made arrangements to meet the girl at a cinema and for them to have sex in a park although the judge noted he never followed up on the plans.
Judge Jeremy Jenkins said Gamlin had a 'very unhealthy' interest in children and told him: 'You were repeatedly told she was only 13 years of age.'
The court heard the offending occurred between September 22 and October 22.
