Pervert had dog and horse bestiality images on data ‘cloud’

Extreme images involving sexual activity with horses and dogs were discovered in a file storage ‘cloud’ 18 months after they had been downloaded.

Matthew Titmarsh, 22, of Cliff Street, Colne, pleaded guilty at Blackburn magistrates to possessing 252 extreme images. He was committed on bail to Burnley Crown Court to be sentenced on July 30.

Alex Mann, prosecuting, said Titmarsh had a previous relevant conviction and was subject to a sexual harm prevention order.

The images had been downloaded onto her client’s computer between 2014 and 2016.
