David Trainer, 56, was convicted of nine charges of indecent assault on four girls, one aged just six, at Inner London Crown Court.

Trainer, who took photos of Hollywood stars Jane Fonda and Bob Hoskins, and also worked as a puppeteer on 1986 movie musical Little Shop of Horrors, was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Judge Mervyn Roberts told him, "The offences were against vulnerable victims. Offending of this nature can have a profound effect."
