He admitted arranging the commission of a child sex offence and was jailed for five and a half years.

The court heard Burns exchanged graphic messages with a person he believed was the child’s mother on a child abuse website based in Russia, in which he admitted liking girls aged nine to 12.

He thought a girl would be provided for him, and police said his journey to Bedfordshire included a seven-hour overnight bus journey.

When officers arrested the former chef, they found a jewellery box, a money box, two dolls and a Valentine cracker containing dice used for a sex game alongside the condoms and cuddly toy.

Prosecutor Martin Mulgrew said:

“He said it was only a fantasy and said he saw no harm in being interested in children.”

Judge Michael Kay described Burns’s online conversations as “shocking and perverted”.

“You have no insight into the effect of what you planned would have psychologically let alone physically on a child of eight.

“It was A wrong, B evil and C out of step with what any reasonable person would think.”

Burns will also be on the sex offenders register for life and abide by the terms of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order as well as a four and a half year extended license after his jail term.
