Men arrested in Cheshire raids over indecent child images

Thirteen men have been arrested on suspicion of uploading and distributing indecent images of children in morning raids across Cheshire.

Computers and other devices owned by the men, aged between 20 and 68, were also seized in the raids.

Det Supt Geraint Jones said the operation "used the most up-to-date technology to identify suspects".

He said the men were being questioned by Cheshire Constabulary's paedophile and cybercrime investigation team.

The arrests were made during raids in Chester, Crewe, Ellesmere Port, Knutsford, Middlewich, Widnes and Winsford.
