Stuart Minns

A man was found with hundreds of indecent images of children after publishing some of the content on social media.

Stuart Minns (35) was caught after his Internet Protocol (IP) address was linked to indecent images of children being uploaded to the internet.

On November 14 officers from the Paedophile Online Investigation Team (POLIT) carried out a warrant at his home in Kilbride Way, Orton Northgate, Peterborough.

Analysis of four electrical items at the property revealed 914 indecent images of children. Of these, 304 were Category A, the most severe.

Minns admitted three counts of making an indecent photo of a child.

Today (Friday) at Cambridge Crown Court Minns was jailed for a year.
