A man charged with possession of indecent images of children has appeared at Belfast Magistrates Court.

John George Kennedy Reid, 41, originally from south Belfast, had left Northern Ireland in 2008 before his trial got under way.

He was detained in Gibraltar on Friday after the PSNI issued a European warrant for his arrest and was returned to Belfast.

District Judge Harry McKibben remanded Reid back into custody.

He is due to appear at the Crown Court in Belfast on a date to be fixed.
