A DAD whose daughter died after taking an overdose has been locked up after being caught with child porn on his computer.

Pervert Bernard Swift, known as Ben, was jailed for four months after a court was told he got sexual gratification from looking at girls as young as eight being abused.

The former primary school governor had been in the news in 2001 calling for more to be done to protect children from abuse after his eldest daughter Elaine, then aged 15, took an overdose of painkillers amid claims of bullying at school. A liver transplant failed to save her life.
