A woman aged 21 who groomed a girl of 15 for sex was jailed for 20 months yesterday after what is believed to be the first prosecution of its kind.

Sarah Wilson, was sent to prison after the court was convinced that she was targetting a 15-year-old girl online and bombarding her with sexually explicit text messages

But she was arrested after the girl's mother learned she had played truant from school and travelled by train from her home in Scunthorpe to meet the 21-year-old pervert at London's Kings Cross station.

Yesterday at Southwark Crown Court in London, Wilson - who is unemployed and weighs more than 20 stone - stood weeping in the dock as prosecutor Peter Zinner said: 'This is an unusual case in that is rare for a female to be involved in the grooming of a child and probably the first case of an adult female involved in grooming a young girl.'

The court heard her intended victim was vulnerable, had a poor relationship with her parents and suffered from low self-esteem.
