A dad who abused his daughter for 20 years was finally jailed after she recorded him boasting about his disgusting crimes.

Raymond Prescott, 54, first attacked Layla Bell, 31, when she was just seven years old.

He taunted her and made foul comments, including telling her the abuse was the ‘best sex he’d ever had’.

Layla said her father would suddenly turn from her ‘best friend’ to a ‘sexual predator’ and described how he would brazenly grope her while shouting: ‘I’m having sex with my own daughter’.

She initially reported the abuse to police in 2001 but withdrew charges, claiming relatives harassed her.

She said: ‘I told my mum – but she wouldn’t even look at me or speak to me.

‘I think she was more ashamed that she hadn’t known before. She believed me I think, but was in shock.

When Prescott tried to attack her in December 2012, brave Layla set a trap and secretly recorded him confessing.

In the chilling clip, Prescott can be heard saying: ‘I can’t have sex with anyone else and enjoy it, so I want to have sex with you.’

After securing enough evidence, Layla passed it onto police and Prescott, of Clifton, Nottingham, was charged with five counts of rape.

He initially denied the charges but was jailed last May after being convicted at Nottingham Crown Court.

Waiving her anonymity to speak out, mum-of-four Layla, of Clifton, Nottingham, said: ‘The very first time he did it I was seven. He said he was proud of me for not wetting the bed and told me I was going to get a present.

‘He took me into the bedroom after everyone else had gone to school and laid me down on the floor.

‘He ran his hands up me and took my skirt off but I can’t fully recall what happened next. I blocked it out of my head because it happened at such a young age, but I knew it was very bad.’
