, the judge said.

On appeal, Kimpriktzis argued the constraints on his employment were 'disproportionate” and effectively blocked him from working anywhere except his own home.

Mr Justice Bean (left) and Judge Michael Pert QC (right), along with Lady Justice Hallett, said it would not be right to condemn Kimpriktzis to a life of unemployment

He also argued that further prohibitions in the SOPO should be varied, so that he can have unsupervised contact with children over 16 and police can no longer remove his computer for inspection without a warrant.

The court allowed the appeal, making the variations and removing the employment restrictions, although Kimpriktzis remains banned from unsupervised contact with children under 17 without parental permission.

Mr Justice Bean concluded: 'We bear in mind that the offence was serious and that, in light of the nature of that offence and the incident with the eBay items, the defendant can properly be described as a predatory paedophile.

'Nonetheless, we consider, in accordance with the guidance of the relevant case law, that Kimpriktzis' points are well made.

'The trial judge said that it would not be desirable to condemn Kimpriktzis to a life on benefits. We agree.'

The barring order disqualifying Kimpriktzis from certain professions remains in place until 2016.
