Man had indecent images of children

A man has admitted possessing indecent images of children.

Noel Dickinson , 43, of Calico Close, Bamber Bridge, Preston, appeared before Preston Magistrates’ Court.

The court heard the youngsters being abused in the images were as young as five.

Other children were thought to be aged up to 13.

The bench deemed the matter too serious for their powers to deal with and committed the case to Preston Crown Court.

Dickinson is expected to appear for sentence on October 22 and has been given bail.

He entered a guilty plea to possessing the images over a period before May 25, 2016.

He also admits three counts of making an indecent photograph or pseudo-photograph of a child.

Some of the images are deemed category A – the most serious in law.
