A man has been jailed for two years after admitting a string of offences related to indecent images of children.
Tibor Banfi, of West Cliff, Preston, admitted four counts of possessing indecent images of children, and a further eight of making indecent images on his laptop.
The 39-year-old changed his pleas to guilty in a hearing at Preston Crown Court.
The court heard some of the offences relate to a period between September 2013 and January 2014.
They involve both still pictures and movie clips of youngsters – with different levels of seriousness.
It is understood Banfi was arrested after the collection of indecent material was discovered on his Toshiba laptop.
The judge, His Honour Judge Andrew Woolman, imposed a two year jail term after briefly adjourning the case to consider the gravity of the images.
