A disabled paedophile from Wembley who filmed himself as he raped young girls and kept diaries about his acts is due to be sentenced today.

Wheelchair-bound Michael D’Costa, 64, documented details about his three young victims and what he did to them alongside sickening video footage at his home in Farnborough Close.

When officers raided his home they seized the diaries, videos, a large amount of electrical equipment, including several televisions, laptops, computers, mobile phones and internal and external CCTV cameras.

Police were alerted to him after a teacher overheard one of his victim’s telling a friend he had offered her money for sex in the Asda car park in Wembley, close to his home.

In April at Isleworth Crown Court he pleaded guilty to five counts of rape, five counts of rape of a child under 13, eight counts of sexual activity with a child, two counts of causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity, three counts of assault on a child under 13 by penetration and two counts of attempted rape of a child under 13.

Detective Inspector Neil John, of the Met’s Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: “D’Costa is a predatory paedophile who kept a sickening account of his abuse on is young victims.

“We are appealing to the public in case there are any further victims of D’Costa’s abuse. Please come forward.”
