Bulger killer Venables jailed over child porn charges

One of the killers of James Bulger has been jailed for two years after admitting downloading and distributing indecent images of children.

Now 27, Jon Venables was 10 when he and friend Robert Thompson murdered the toddler in Bootle, Merseyside, in 1993.

The images were found on Venables' computer after he alerted his probation officer when he feared his new identity was in danger of being revealed.

Andy Tighe looks back at Venables' past.
