A KELSO man has admitted possession of scores of indecent photographs and movies of children.

Fifty six year old James Thomson pleaded guilty to the offence which happened at his home at The Linn between September 2015, and November 30 last year.

Some of the images and films uploaded onto his computer were in the most serious Category A showing girls aged from infancy to 12 years old engaged in penetrative sexual activity with adults or other children.

Sentence was deferred at Jedburgh Sheriff Court until October 29 for the production of a Criminal Justice Social Work Report and a Restriction of Liberty Order assessment.
