A man formerly from Northamptonshire who distributed indecent images of children has been jailed for 22 months.

Martyn Webster, 47, who now lives in Windmill Road, St Minver, Wadebridge, Cornwall, was arrested on October 24, 2017, after police executed a warrant in Northamptonshire after police received information that an indecent photo had been uploaded from that address.

Police gained access to Webster's electronic devices and uncovered more indecent images of children.
