Adrian Rose, 36, of Rochester Drive in Westcliff-on-Sea, had been found guilty of eight rapes, five counts of child abduction and one of grooming a girl.

Judge Stephen Holt, sentencing at Norwich Crown Court, said the grooming and rapes were “highly planned”.

He said BBM, where messages are quickly deleted, was useful for paedophiles.

Rose, who was based in Aldershot, was also banned for life from using social networks unless he informed police and gave them his password for the site.

A 31-year-old man is behind bars awaiting a long jail sentence for raping a woman in a park and trying to abduct a ten-year-old girl.

Khalid Mahmood was warned to expect “a significant custodial sentence” when the level of danger he poses to the public has been assessed.

Mahmood, of Gordon Street, Keighley, was found guilty by a jury at Bradford Crown Court yesterday of raping a woman in Cliffe Castle Park in Keighley on March 21, 2011.

After the majority verdict of 10-2 was delivered by the foreman, the jurors learned that Mahmood had earlier been convicted of attempting to abduct a little girl in Keighley as she played on her scooter.

They also heard that he had four previous convictions for indecently assaulting women. Some jurors were visibly shaken and one woman was in tears and asked to leave the court.
