A 50-year-old Pickering man has appeared in court charged with making thousands of indecent images of children.

David Hughes, of South Moor, Dalby, near Pickering, is accused of nine separate counts of possessing indecent images or videos.

He appeared at York Crown Court on Monday when his case was adjourned for a formal plea hearing on April 13.

Hughes was bailed until then on condition that he has no unsupervised contact with any person under 18 years of age.
