A Church of England vicar who told a 13-year-old girl to sexually abuse her nine-year-old sister during an online chat has been jailed for just two years.

The vicar, a married father of two young children, told the teenager he wanted her and her sister to have sex with their own mother.

In another online exchange, he told the teenager to rape her younger sibling.

Police officers discovered the clergyman's communications when they went to the vicarage in Luton, Bedfordshire, where he lived with his family and seized his laptop computer from his study.

The vicar had been a regular visitor to the chat room for youngsters, deriving sexual gratification from the chat logs, a court was told.

At Luton Crown Court, the vicar , pleaded guilty to seven charges of publishing obscene material in the form of chat logs.

Six offences relate to material posted online in June 2012 and one to a publication in November 2012.
