Kent policeman Timothy Ryton admits child image charges

A police inspector has admitted making and distributing indecent images and videos of children.

Timothy Ryton, who works for the Kent force, appeared at Crawley Magistrates' Court on nine charges.

The officer pleaded guilty to three counts of distributing indecent images of children, two of taking indecent videos, two of distribution, and two of voyeurism unrelated to a child.

He was bailed and will be sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on 26 April.

The 45-year-old was arrested on 23 January and formally suspended from duty the following day.

A Kent Police spokesman said he will be subject to internal disciplinary proceedings "in due course".
