Carlisle court remands child porn man in custody 'for his own protection'

A west Cumbrian man has been remanded in custody "for his own protection" after admitting a string of child pornography charges.

Colin Storr, 53, of Chaucer Avenue, Egremont, admitted 13 offences of downloading indecent photographs of children from the internet when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today.

They covered more than 700 separate images of children aged between three and 16, and were classified as being from levels one (the least serious) to four (the second highest) on the official five-category scale of seriousness.

Storr was remanded in custody by Judge Paul Batty QC for his own protection, though he did not say why that was.

He will be sentenced on January 24.
