Pervert amassed more than 10,000 indecent child images

A MAN has admitted amassing more than 10,000 vile images of children over more than a decade.

Troy Blayney, aged 47, appeared at Plymouth Crown Court to plead guilty to downloading indecent pictures and sick cartoons.

He also had extreme pornography depicting people having sex with animals.

A judge adjourned sentence for six weeks for a probation report and further analysis of images.

Smartly-dressed Blayney, of Kinnaird Crescent, Southway, pleaded guilty to three counts of making a total of 10,537 indecent images of children between September 2004 and June 2015.

They include 732 pictures in the most severe bracket, Category A, depicting adults abusing children.

Blayney also accessed 506 Category B images and 9,299 in Category C.

He also admitted possession of extreme pornography – 62 images of people having sex with animals.

Blayney finally pleaded guilty to having 390 prohibited images of children, which usually take the form of vile cartoons.

Judge Ian Lawrie released Blayney, who is of previous good character, on unconditional bail to be sentenced on December 2.
