A MAN appeared in court to face charges over indecent images of children.

Wesley Sproat, 25, from Hylton Castle, did not enter a plea at Sunderland Magistrates’ Court to a total of 23 charges relating to indecent images.

He is charged with 18 offences of making indecent images, four of possessing indecent images and one of possessing animal pornography.

The court heard last week that the offences are alleged to have taken place between March 2008 and August 2010.

Magistrates ruled the case was too serious for them to deal with and committed it to Newcastle Crown Court.

Mr Sproat was granted conditional bail until a further hearing in March.

He was ordered to live and sleep at his home address and not to use the internet without supervision.
