A sicko tricked his ex-girlfriend into thinking he had created and uploaded a porn video of her having sex with a dog.

Steven Hope photoshopped topless snaps of his former partner with dogs and sent her a vile video of a woman having sex with one.

"Vindictive" Hope then sent his victim emails off fake accounts pretending to be fans of the bestiality video which he lied about publishing online.

As well as the disgusting clip, "bitter and angry" Hope sent the grandmother a "mocked up" image of her topless next to a dog's penis.

Hope, 51, of Fincham Road, Huyton, admitted possessing extreme porn and sending an electronic communication of a grossly offensive nature to cause distress at Liverpool Crown Court.

Derek Jones, prosecuting, said the second charge related to essentially "a period of harassment" by Hope after the relationship, the ECHO reports.

He said: "He then for the next five or six weeks sent her messages which clearly were meant to cause distress or embarrass her.

"Then perhaps the most distressing aspect was the use of references to bestiality, in particular sexual relations with dogs.

"There was inference in his messages – frequent uses of dog emojis."

Mr Jones said this culminated in two files sent to the victim, one of a "mocked up" image of her topless next to a dog's penis and the second a 50-second long video showing a woman having sex with a dog.

He added: "Not her obviously, nothing to do with her, but clearly again she found it distressing."

Mr Jones said the victim then received emails from fake accounts referring to her liking to have sex with dogs.

He said: "One of the messages said her image with the dog's penis superimposed had been put on a bestiality website."

Mr Jones said: "Upsettingly, one of them made reference to them having three large dogs that would like to meet up with her.

"Initially she thought the image had been posted by the defendant on a website."

However, the court heard the woman spotted spelling mistakes commonly made by Hope in the messages.

Hope – who now says no-one else in fact saw the photos – also sent texts "professing his love for her and saying he would kill himself".

When arrested, Hope told officers "he felt bitter and angry at the break up".

In a victim statement, the woman said Hope's crimes "left me a shadow of my former self".

Hope sobbed and wailed as the judge jailed him for six months.
