Three teenage schoolgirls helped catch a paedophile by taking pictures of him on their camera phones according to The Sun.

51 year old Ian Hunter from Chiswick allegedly groomed the 14-year-olds in an internet chat room posing as a woman under the name Popcorn Puppydog.

After learning that the girls were going to be at the Tate Modern on a school trip, he approached them and allowed them to take pictures of him on their mobile phones.

One of the girls told The Sun, “My friend asked who he was and he replied, ‘I’m Popcorn Puppydog’. We thought ‘Oh my God’ and just freaked out. One of my friends burst into tears.

“I gave one girl my mobile. He smiled straight into the lens as we filmed him. He rubbed one of my friends on her back and said, ‘I’ve come here to reassure you I’m not a weirdo’. But we quickly walked away and told someone.”

Hunter was thrown out by security and when detectives searched his Chiswick home they discovered 20,000 child abuse and adult porn pictures and magazines.

Hunter admitted 16 child porn charges and sexual assault in court will be sentenced on November 30.
