Worle man found with more than 250 indecent photos on computer

Police found a Worle man had indecent photos of children on his computer and people having sex with animals.

Edward Extence, aged 39, pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent photos of children and a count of being in possession of extreme pornographic images.

Extence, of High Street, was in possession of 45 photos of children as well as 239 ‘extreme’ photos – which showed someone having sex with animals.

The material was ‘grossly offensive’ and ‘disgusting’, according to the charges he faced.

Police uncovered the images between 2016 and 2017 using monitoring technology.

Extence was handed a 10-month sentence, suspended for 12 months, at Bristol Crown Court on May 16.

He was also ordered to pay £200 in costs, to sign the sex offenders register for 10 years and handed a sexual harm prevention order for five years. He was also told to complete a 55-day rehabilitation order.
