A sex offender is awaiting sentence after he admitted making and possessing child sexual abuse images

Alan Andrew, 53, pled guilty to two charges regarding indecent images of children when he appeared before Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week.

Andrew, of East Broomlands, Irvine admitted to one charge of taking, permitting to be taken, or making indecent images, photographs, or pseudo-photographs of children.
