Pervert jailed over indecent photos of children


A man who amassed a library of thousands of indecent images of children including ones involving babies aged between a year and 18 months has been sent to prison.

Police found still and moving pictures in the possession of Nathan Newman, 40, from Cumbria.

Newman, from Station Road, Flimby, was jailed for 30 months at Carlisle Crown Court having previously admitted taking and downloading indecent images, and voyeurism.

Hundreds of the images were classed as “Category A” – the most serious which involved the rape and torture of very young children including babies.

Judge Peter Davies told him: “All of these offences were committed with the intention of your own perverted lust.”

Newman was also made subject to a sexual harm prevention order and must sign the sex offenders register indefinitely
