Matthew Curtis, defending, claimed that Booth had attempted to take his own life after being arrested and has been disowned by all of his family other than his sister.

A pensioner has been warned he faces a lengthy jail sentence after admitting he watched children in the Philippines being abused online. Peter Booth pleaded guilty to four charges of causing or inciting the sexual exploitation of a child under 13 by paying to view the live sexual abuse of children via Skype. A judge at Caernarfon Crown Court was told the children in a 13-minute video were aged just nine and six years old. The offences were said to have been committed in July 2016. The 74-year-old, of St Andrew's Avenue in Llandudno, also admitted charges of possessing indecent images of children and distributing such images.
