A PERVERT jailed for child sex abuse image offences was back re-offending shortly after his release.

Blackburn magistrates heard Joseph Sweeney downloaded video clips and then distributed them via the internet, putting him in breach of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order.

He was sent in custody to Preston Crown Court to be sentenced.
