London, Jan 23 (IANS) A man has been jailed for five years in Britain after penning down the details of abusing a 15-year-old girl in an autobiography.

Philip Morton, 56, documented his indecent assaults on the teenager between 1994 and 1995 in the book, which was discovered by police officers searching his house in Lincolnshire, Daily Mail reported.

Humberside Police said officers had obtained intelligence that led them to procure a search warrant for Morton's house in Immingham, near Grimsby, last February.

As well as the harrowing book, officers found over 17,000 indecent images of children in his computer.

The book was not a published title but a paper document which he kept at his home.
