James Bulger killer Venables in court on porn charges

One of the killers of James Bulger, Jon Venables, will appear by videolink at the Old Bailey today to face allegations of downloading indecent images of children.

Venables, who is now twenty-seven, was ten years old when he and Robert Thompson murdered the toddler.

He was released in 2001 and given a new identity but was re-arrested earlier this year.

Andy Tighe reports.
