Pervert caught with indecent images of kids

A married dad was caught with a library of sickening paedophile films and photographs.

Jeffrey David Watson had secretly downloaded the images from internet sites on a home computer and laptop.

Watson, 37, of Raby Way, Byker, Newcastle, stored more than 1,000 pictures and had 45 movies, Newcastle Crown Court heard.

Judge David Wood jailed him for four years, ordered him to register as a sex offender for life and banned him from working with children.

Watson admitted charges of making and possessing indecent images of children.
