Jedburgh Sheriff Court heard that police obtained a search warrant and found a mobile phone which contained the images and videos which Mark had been distributing.

Sheriff Daniel Kelly said the images and videos featured children aged between three and 14 years old who were in extreme distress.

Taking into account his previous convictions he added: "There is no suitable alternative to imprisonment."

Mark has also been subject to the notification requirement of the Sexual Offences Act for three years.

The three year jail sentence was back-dated to December 17 when Mark was first remanded in custody.
