A SCARBOROUGH man has appeared in court facing a number of charges relating to indecent images of children.

Michael Davison, 45, of Pavilion Terrace, spoke briefly to confirm his details during the hearing at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court.

He faces 20 separate charges relating to indecent pictures and videos, 13 of which contravene the Protection of Children Act and seven of which contravene the Criminal Justice Act.

The defendant did not enter a plea during the hearing.

Katy Varlow, prosecuting, said the matters were far too serious to be tried at the magistrates’ court and asked for the case to be committed to crown court.

The case was adjourned to June 28 for committal proceedings.
