A man who held a catalogue of ‘horrendous’ child abuse images on his computer has been jailed.
Kevan Walker, 50, formerly of Malthouse Green, Luton, had been charged with six offences relating to indecent photographs of children after Bedfordshire Police received intelligence regarding his online activity.
As a result of this information the force searched Walker’s address and seized items which could be examined for the presence of child abuse material.
Walker had maintained a denial of any ownership of such material but later pleaded guilty to all six counts and was sentenced to two years in prison on Friday.
He will also be added to the sex offenders register for life.
Detective constable Paul Fitzharris from the Internet Child Abuse Investigation Team (ICAIT), said: “In all the time I have worked in the ICAIT I’ve never witnessed such horrendous material to the level that Walker was viewing.
“The measures placed against Walker will ensure that he remains under supervision for the rest of his life and will be prevented from contributing any further to the sick cycle of child abuse.”
