A 25-year-old Suffolk man who exchanged intimate videos with a 14-year-old schoolgirl has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Jake Boreham was arrested after the victim’s mother found a naked video of him and one of her daughter pulling down her top in a chat on her tablet, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

The girl told her mother that she had sent intimate pictures and videos to Boreham at his request and that she was in love with him.

The court heard that Boreham and the girl had initially met online through their shared interest in music.
