A Kesgrave man has appeared in court charged with five offences of making indecent images of a child and possessing extreme pornography.

Colin Dowsett, of St Crispins Close, did not enter a plea when he appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates Court in Ipswich.

The 60-year-old is accused of having nearly 2,800 indecent images of children.

He is also accused of possessing an image portraying a person performing an act of intercourse with a live unknown animal.

Prosecutor Colette Harper said the case was not suitable for trial at magistrates court due to the seriousness of the charges and the number of Category A images – the most serious grading for child pornography.
