Derry child porn dad reported by his wife - court told

A Londonderry engineer who downloaded indecent images of children was reported to a social worker by his wife, a court has been told.

Michael Mullen, 49, from Cooleen Park, has admitted downloading 35 images on to his computer between 2005 and 2008.

Londonderry Crown Court was told he initially denied the offences and said his wife and teenage sons had access to the same computer.

The judge described the offences as "extremely serious".
