Man guilty of possessing indecent images of children and animals

A man was ordered immediately to register as a sex offender after he pleaded guilty to having indecent images of children and extreme animal pornography.

Clifford Cook, 56, from Middlesbrough, was told by the judge that he must report to the police if he changes his address or even his bank account.

Cook pleaded guilty to four internet pornography offences between September last year and January this year.

He admitted two offences of making 16 images of children at the most serious Category A, another eight at Category B, one of extreme pornography, and possessing 268 extreme pornographic images.

Cook, of Bondfield Road, Middlesbrough, was granted bail for a pre-sentence report to be prepared on the application of Gary Wood, defending. He will be sentenced on October 12.
