A British paedophile magician arrested in Thailand had animals including monkeys, meerkats and a pig in his 'Neverland Ranch-style' home.
Paul McKee used the stage name 'Professor Paulos' while working as a children's entertainer, and he was working in a school when he was arrested in the southeast Asian country for child sex offences.
McKee, 57, from the Wirral, Merseyside, subjected his victims to a catalogue of harrowing abuse over the course of nearly 25 years and now faces the rest of his life in prison.

The sicko, jailed for 30 years at Liverpool Crown Court on Monday, had to be extradited back to the UK from Thailand by authorities, the ECHO reported.
He reportedly kept a pig in his back garden and had monkeys, meerkats and sugar gliders as pets at his property which appeared similar to Michael Jackson's 'Neverland Ranch'.
A trial previously heard he targeted some children who were just toddlers, and began his vile abuse in the mid-1980s until the late noughties. Several of the assaults had been filmed with a camcorder.
Prosecutors told the court McKee was a "serial abuser of children", with some of the details of his attacks being too graphic to publish.
His behaviour was finally reported to police in 2017. In their "harrowing, dark and disturbing" accounts, the complainants described how, when they were as young as two, McKee "treated them like sex slaves".
The defendant, a Mormon from a religious family, was living in Thailand and had to be returned to this country in order to face a jury.

When his brother messaged him on social media after learning of the allegations, the pervert replied saying he was "sorry for what he had done and was asking for God's forgiveness".
The court was told he was "a predatory paedophile capable of extreme acts of violence against very young children" and had subjected the victims to a "prolonged, vicious campaign of abuse". He had committed acts of "brutal and profound degradation" which were "designed to emasculate and humiliate".
Judge David Swinnerton, sentencing, said: "You created an environment in the house where children wanted to come. You had animals – a pig, monkeys.
"(Children) were allowed to come and go. In their teens, they were allowed to drink and smoke."
McKee's career in the entertainment industry, which saw him work as a DJ as well as a magician, included shows at the Floral Pavilion Theatre in New Brighton, Greenacres Animal Park in Deeside, Wales and Robin Hood Caravan Park in Rhyl.
He is reported to have given personal performances to at least two former Liverpool FC stars, who each made hundreds of appearances for the Reds.
McKee spent a decade living in Thailand – where he worked as a teacher in a primary school and has a wife and young daughter.
