A predatory hospital nurse who raped two patients while they were unconscious under general anaesthetic has been jailed for 18 years. 

Andrew Hutchinson, 29, molested two women at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford between 2011 and 2013. 

The A&E nurse filmed the horrific attacks, storing them on a computer at his home alongside 'hundreds' of other indecent images. 

He has been jailed for 18 years following a trial at Oxford Crown Court where he admitted 25 other offences including voyeurism and outraging public decency. 

Earlier, the court heard how officers discovered footage of the attacks on a mobile phone and computer at Hutchinson's home. 

They had been alerted to the property in Garford, near Abingdon, after he was seen trying to take indecent photographs of two young girls on his mobile phone as they changed at a local leisure centre. 

Alongside footage of the hospital rapes was a cache of 'up skirt' images and indecent photographs of children, some of which had been taken on a camera stolen from the hospital. 

One of the images was taken up the skirt of a woman as she stood at her sickly friend's bedside, the court heard.  

The court heard how Hutchinson told police had filmed or taken photographs of up to 50 women without their knowledge over a period of 12 years in Abingdon, Oxford, and in Batley, West Yorkshire, where he used to live. 

He carried the endoscope camera around John Radcliffe Hospital with the sole intent of photographing both patients and women visiting them.

The rapist used a similar tactic while volunteering at the 2012 London Olympics, filming women as they walked up the escalators of the Tube. 

While working as a volunteer paramedic at a musical festival he also groped two women and indecently assaulted them while they were unconscious in a medical tent, the court heard. 

He was finally caught by police after trying to use his mobile phone to film two young girls as they changed in a cubicle at the White Horse Leisure Centre in Abingdon.  

Hutchinson admitted 23 sexual offences and four of a different nature at an earlier court hearing.  He showed no emotion as he was sentenced today.

Describing his abhorrent offences, Judge Ian Pringle said it was 'impossible to conceive a greater breach of trust in our society'. 

Earlier the court heard how Hutchinson had abused his position as a trusted health worker to abuse vulnerable women on several occasions. 

Whiles working as a volunteer paramedic at the Wilderness Music Festival at Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire, he filmed himself assaulting two youngsters who had passed out. 

He had been put in charge of the nursing operation at the festival, a position he maneuvered to gain time alone with his victims.
