Aberdeen man locked up over huge haul of indecent images of kids


AN ABERDEEN man has been jailed for nearly six years after being caught with one of the largest hauls of indecent images of children ever seized by police in the North-east.

Craig McKessock, 28, was locked up for having 16,576 indecent images and 7,713 videos.

Aberdeen Sheriff Court was told that the haul contained “some of the most extreme” content officers had seen.

Sheriff Graeme Napier sentenced McKessock, whose address was given as Foveran Street, Bridge of Don, to a total of 69 months in prison for what he called “a horrendous offence.”
