An abusive paedophile couple has been jailed for 25 years after admitting to a sickening string of 30 sex offences against children.
Kevin Hitt, 56, and his wife Nicola, 53, subjected the children to a campaign of vile abuse over a six-year period between 2008 and 2014.
When police raided their home in Tamworth, Staffordshire, in October 2019 they uncovered a hoard of video footage and pornographic images of kids.
Kevin Hitt pleaded guilty to 21 charges, including seven counts of engaging in a sexual act in the presence of a child, ten counts of causing a boy or girl to engage in a sexual act without penetration, and four counts of causing a child to watch sex.

He was jailed for 16-and-a-half years, given a sexual harm prevention order and placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life at Stafford Crown Court on Monday.
Nicola Hitt admitted five counts of causing a boy or girl to engage in sexual activity without penetration and four counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.
She was caged for eight years and three months and also made subject to a sexual harm prevention order and added to the Sex Offenders Register for life.
Staffordshire Police said they were made aware of the non-recent allegations of abuse against children after they were made to another force.
