Trainee took abuse images of pupils at primary school

A man has admitted taking indecent pictures of children at a primary school where he was on a training placement.

Lewis Croft, 19, pleaded guilty at Lincolnshire Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday to nine charges of making indecent photographs of a child.

Police said three images were taken at a school where Lewis had a placement as part of his college course.

He was remained in custody and will be sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court later.

Lincolnshire Police said officers raided Croft’s home in Cliff Road, Welton, in July after the force received a tip-off from an American law enforcement agency that illegal images were being downloaded.
