AN NHS midwife who led a secret double life as an X-rated webcam model has been jailed for "brainwashing" underage girls into sex with her husband.

Claire Moores, 46, and husband Craig, 51, from Stockport, would host swingers' orgies where they plied local schoolgirls with drugs and drink to get them to join in their so-called ''pleasure palace'' activities.

Confused victims including two young sisters were either forced to have sex with the Moores or made to watch them having sex whilst being filmed.

One was even taken to watch Moores take part in a live ''B***fight’’ between women which was filmed for X-rated websites.

A neighbour saw Moores dressed only in a basque and suspenders undressing one girl, who was later abused by her husband.

Another victim was devastated when she put on a DVD only to discover vile footage of her sister being abused by Craig Moores.

It emerged one of girls had been abused by Craig Moores for four years from the age of 13.

"They have taken my childhood from me and left me with feelings of shame and guilt because I was effectively brainwashed.

"I often had dreams and nightmares of what happened , which left me feeling depressed.

"I have been living with the effects of being on drugs since 13 and missed out on a normal school because of it.

"I felt like a victim all my life."

A female victim, also now an adult, said: "I will have to live with Claire in my mind all my life.

"I left school with no qualifications because of my drug use. I pushed away teachers and councillors who were trying to help me.

"I had to start from the bottom with work, my life is a battle.

"They may have destroyed my past, but they will not destroy my future."


Claire Moores was jailed for 13 years and her husband for 15 years after they were convicted of 25 sex offences – including indecent assault and sexual activity with a child committed between 2002 and 2015 and involving three girls.

Prosecutor Julia Goode said: "Claire Moores operated in the sex industry in her spare time, dressing up in erotic clothing and charging clients to view her performances over a webcam.

"Both defendants had a sexual interest in underage children.

"The elder child was groomed by them, fed with a cocktail of drugs, and effectively brainwashed into joining in with their lifestyle and becoming a part of it.

"Craig started sexually abusing her when she was 13. She was young and vulnerable and really thought that she was in a relationship with him.

"He then manipulated her into having sex with Claire for his and Claire’s gratification.

"They met up when Claire was out at work – she was a midwife and sometimes worked night shifts, in the gym, in the garage, even at a cemetery."


The court heard that Craig gave the girl ecstasy and began abusing her when she was 13.

Another girl was also plied with cannabis, cocaine and MDMA from the age of 14.

Claire Moores had previous convictions for arson and for inciting underage boys to engage in a sexual act after she flashed her breasts at three youths whilst washing her car.

Her lawyer Colin Buckle said: "She has been diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder.

"The shadow of her depression has never left her life. She is vulnerable.

"Prisoners who are stronger and more sophisticated than her will make life hard for her in custody."

The Moores will both have to serve two thirds of their sentence in custody, with the remainder being served on licence.

They were also made to sign the Sex Offender Register for life.

In sentencing, Judge Maurice Greene told Minshull Street Crown Court: "These were very serious offences indeed. The victims are still affected to this day.”

Det Sgt Shona Mulvey said after the case: "Claire and Craig Moores’ crimes are truly abhorrent and today marks the culmination of many years’ worth of investigation.

"While their sentencings cannot take away from the years of suffering they have caused their victims, we hope it provides some solace in the fact that they are no longer at large and able to harm children.''
