Davis, of Peterborough, admitted charges of possessing extreme pornographic images of an animal, possession of a prohibited image of a child and making an indecent pseudo photo of a child.

He was handed a two-year community order, a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and 80 hours of unpaid work at Huntingdon Law Court today (23 September).

PC Stuart Cooper said: “All registered sex offenders in Cambridgeshire are monitored and part of this includes carrying our unannounced visits at their home to assess electronic devices.

“This is a prime example of why these requirements are in place - to protect the public and make sure reoffending is stopped.”
