A 59-year-old Ipswich man has been told he must attend an internet sex offender treatment programme after admitting downloading indecent images of children.

David Ransome, of Kingsley Close, was also given a three-year community order with a supervision requirement at his Ipswich Crown Court sentencing.

Ransome was arrested by Suffolk police after a tip-off from the Child Exploitation Online Protection team at the National Crime Agency.

He was interviewed in May this year and admitted viewing and downloading indecent images.

Police found 88 movies on his laptop computer, two of which were at the most serious grading for child pornography.

A further three movies were discovered on a digital camera memory card.

Ransome was charged in October.
