The sales assistant also sent separate footage to the third party of an unknown male masturbating over images of children.

Lipscombe, of Leith, was snared after police received information regarding the offences and raided his home on August 11 last year.

He pleaded guilty to two sexual offences when he appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Sheriff Douglas Keir placed oddball Lipscombe on the Sex Offenders’ Register for two years and placed him under supervision for the same length of time.

He also banned Lipscombe from entering the grounds of schools, nurseries, playparks or anywhere else designed for children and ordered him to engage with rehabilitation programmes for sex offenders and prohibited him from communicating with under-18s.

Prosecutor Anna Robertson told the court: “A search was undertaken and during the examination of devices it was ascertained the accused had sent several videos of himself masturbating over female children’s clothing.”

The videos were also found which “indicated the accused had taken a number of images of a 12-year-old girl playing in a garden”.

Lipscombe then sent the videos to an unknown person and 2170 messages between the pair discussing the girl in “a sexual context” were also discovered.

The court was told the male Lipscombe sent the images to is currently “unknown and untraced”.

Lipscombe pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by sending videos of himself masturbating over children’s clothing and an unknown male masturbating over images of children to a third party from his home between June 1 and July 1 last year.

He also admitted to taking pictures of a 12-year-old girl, and her clothing hanging on a washing line, and sending the pictures to an unknown person and discussing the child in a sexual context including discussing having the child watch him masturbate and him masturbating over her clothing on the same dates.
