A LEIGH man has admitted child porn offences - for the second time.

Shaun Bradburn pleaded guilty at Liverpool Crown Court to a total of 18 offences and was remanded on bail to await sentence next month.

He admitted 16 offences of downloading such images, including some in the most two serious categories and involving children aged between five to 17 years old.

Bradburn, aged 52, also pleaded guilty to distributing two indecent images and possessing a total of 416 child porn photos.

Defence barrister Geoffrey Lowe, asked for a psychiatric report to be prepared before Bradburn is sentenced but after hearing that he has a previous similar conviction and has attended part of a rehabilitation course Judge Mark Brown ruled that such a report was unnecessary.

Sentence on Lowe, of The Avenue, was adjourned until August 15 to enable a pre-sentence report to be produced.
