Fleetwood man downloaded child abuse images and videos

The sentencing of a man who downloaded indecent images of children has been delayed after a court heard he was deemed to have significant learning difficulties.

Keith Anthony Simpson, 46, of Warrenhurst Road, Fleetwood, previously admitted three counts of making indecent images.

The first charge relates to 15 category A images – the most serious in law – that consisted of 11 pictures and four videos.

He also admits making 13 pictures and one video deemed category B, and 42 Pictures and a video deemed category C.

Preston Crown Court heard the offences took place between May 19 and May 23 last year.

Judge Sara Dodd adjourned the case until July 29
