TWO paedophile brothers have been jailed for at least seven years each for what a judge described as "sexual depravity against children on a huge scale".

Graham Potter, 40, and half-brother Damien Barker, 22, carried out a sickening two-year orgy of abuse against a boy and girl as young as five.

Potter was jailed indefinitely after he admitted a catalogue of sex crimes including offences against another young boy and girl in the late 1990s. He will serve a minimum of seven years before a parole board can consider his release.

Barker, of Custom House, who has a reading age of a five-year-old, was jailed for seven years.
