A pedophile ex-vicar has been downloading sick photos of young children while living in a luxury apartment with the blessing of the Church of England.

For the past three years pedophile former reverend Paul Battersby has been living in one of Liverpool’s most desirable developments, Beetham Tower, paid for with his pension from the church.

Liverpool Echo reports:

Former reverend Paul Battersby repeatedly downloaded sick photographs of young children being molested by fellow perverts.

But for the last three years he has lived in Beetham Tower – one of Liverpool’s most desirable developments in Old Hall Street.

Yet the ex-Church of England national youth officer had the audacity to MOAN about his home and compare his circumstances to prison.

Battersby, 68, was jailed for 20 months after a court heard he spent his time in the flat amassing a disturbing collection of illegal files.

He downloaded 1,730 indecent images of children and extreme animal porn, then wrote a twisted child sex abuse fantasy starring himself.

Prosecutors said perhaps “equally worrying” was the discovery of a shoebox full of children’s clothes, stashed in his high-rise apartment.

Peter Turner, defending, said his client – estranged from his two ex-wives and two children – was “incredibly lonely” in the swanky pad.

The solicitor told Liverpool Crown Court: “He describes living in a small flat the Church of England have rented for him and funded.

“It’s effectively in an office block. He sees very few people. He sees friends occasionally and his sister visits on a regular basis.

“He says it’s not far off the life he would have if he was in prison.”

Battersby, who served in the ministry for 31 years, was first caught with a horrifying movie of a girl being raped in 2007.
