A perverted pensioner has been jailed after he was caught in possession of indecent images of children.

The court heard that Graham Adshead (73) had been collecting images of children for over a decade.

The judge sentenced Graham Adshead to 12 months imprisonment.

The court imposed a sexual harm prevention order for 10-years.

He must also sign the sex offenders register for a period of 10-years.
