A man has been jailed for life after fathering a child with his own daughter who he raped repeatedly from when she was just 10. 

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was given a life sentence after Derby Crown Court after jurors heard how he 'took his daughter's life' through sexual abuse. 

His depravity was exposed when he impregnated her when she was just a teenager, having 'poisoned' the girl against her mother.  

As she watched her abuser being led away from the dock the girl ran towards him, crying out: 'I love you and miss you.'

Earlier the court heard how her father had been her primary carer for years and began raping her when he felt 'out of sorts or angry'. 

Despite promising to stop the abuse after each attack, the man carried on abusing her until she became pregnant. 

In a bid to terminate the pregnancy without raising concern he encouraged his daughter to continue kick boxing, the court heard. 

Eventually, when the girl refused to tell authorities who the father of the baby was they ordered a paternity test. 

The pair fled but were apprehended by police and the man taken into custody.   

Giving evidence the girl told of how she was too scared to reported her father to police and still 'loved him'. 

'The abuse has set my life on the wrong course and destroyed the normal childhood and teenage years that everyone deserves,' she said in a statement. 

'I feared the consequences of disclosure because I love my dad.  

'I know what he did was wrong, but I grew up with my dad by my side.

'I just wanted him to get help to make him better but unfortunately that never happened and it has come to this.

'It's come to me having a baby and to the father being my dad and to him being sentenced and my life falling apart.'

The man, who earlier admitted rape, had 'poisoned' the girl against her mother who did not live with them, the court heard.  

Applying the same sentence as is handed to murderers, Judge Stuart Rafferty QC told the man: 'You took your daughter's life.'  

Jailing him for a minimum term of 15 years, he said: 'It's difficult to find words that could properly describe the extent of your deprivation and the damage that that deprivation has caused, not to a stranger but to your own daughter.

'Children do not ask to be born. Children are entitled to expect the best from their parents, in terms of care and parental love, that they can possibly receive.

'You gave your daughter a warped variation of that, a variation that suited you, not her.

'And, although I know you have to serve a prison sentence for that, the sentence you imposed upon her is a far greater one.'

He added the girl has been consigned 'to a life of darkness'. 

'She loved you, as any child loves its parents, and although people may think it strange, she loves you still - that's what children do.'
