‘Busted newspaper’: ‘I can’t believe I’ve been caught in a paedophile ring’

“I’m not a paedo, I’m not in the world of child pornography,” the 31-year-old told police.

“I’ve never been involved in anything like that before.”

The detective asked Mr Mcpheron whether he would like to tell police about the events that took place in the home where he was living with his wife and child.

He replied: “Yeah, I can tell you that I’m innocent of it.”

Mr Mcpheson was arrested on Tuesday and charged with eight offences including rape, incest, child cruelty, and a string of indecent assaults.

He told police he did not know the name of the person he had been raping or the victim.

He has been remanded in custody while his case is heard by magistrates.
