Paedophile's images of victim cannot be deleted, police say

A convicted paedophile will be allowed to keep photos of a young girl he abused after police said they were powerless to destroy them.

The images - which are not classified as indecent - are stored on his laptop, which he has formally requested be handed back.

The girl's mother has now asked human rights group Liberty to back her campaign to have the pictures destroyed.

Sean Killick reports from Dorchester.
