Paedophile posed as Justin Bieber and Niall Horan of One Direction to trick teenage girls into stripping for him online
A paedophile who tricked under aged girls into performing sexual acts on their webcams befriended the teens online by posing as Justin Bieber and One Direction's Niall Horan.
Simon Hale then persuaded the girls from Britain, Australia and Denmark into posing naked or topless for him as well as blackmailing teen Bieber and 1D fans into performing sexual acts on Skype.
The 37-year-old was jailed for a minimum of ten years and the judge branded him so dangerous he may never be freed.
Both Justin Bieber and Niall Horan have been informed of the case and were both ‘horrified and appalled’ at the way their identities had been used by Hale.
