An ex-Radio 1 DJ who arranged the sexual abuse of children in the Philippines will spend longer in prison following Alex's intervention.
Mark Page, 63, engaged in online communication with child prostitutes in the Philippines and travelled to the Philippines to sexually abuse the children.
Page was originally sentenced to 12 years’ imprisonment. Following Alex's decision to refer his sentence to the Court of Appeal, Page's sentence was increased to 18 years.
Speaking after the hearing, Alex said: "Mark Page took advantage of the poverty and deprivation of young, vulnerable children in the Philippines for his own sexual gratification. I welcome the decision to increase the sentence, to properly reflect the gravity of these very serious crimes."
