Bulger killer Venables jailed over child abuse images

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

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

Venables was living in Cheshire when the images were found on his computer after he invited a probation officer to his home.

Andy Tighe reports.
