A Larne man has appeared in court accused of possessing and distributing indecent images of children.

Ryan McNeill (26), of Bengore Gardens, was in the dock at Ballymena Magistrates Court and faces five charges.

On February 10, 2015, it is alleged he made an indecent photo of a child and that he distributed or showed an indecent photo of a child.

On May 9, 2016, he is accused of possessing an indecent photo of children; having an ‘extreme pornographic image’ and having an image of a child ‘which was of such a nature as is prohibited by…the Coroners and Justice Act’.

A police officer said he believed he could connect the accused to the charges.

A prosecutor said most of the file was complete and asked for an adjournment to the end of January.

The defendant was released on £500 bail with conditions that he is not to have any unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18 and he is not to be in possession of any electronic device capable of accessing the internet nor have any access to the internet whatsoever.

The case was adjourned to the end of January.
