South Wales Police inspector on child sex images

A South Wales Police inspector has been charged with possessing indecent images of children.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said Geraint Lloyd Evans was remanded in custody by magistrates in Llanelli on Thursday.

It said a separate investigation connected with the case had led to three members of the public also being charged.

Mr Evans, 47, will appear before Swansea Crown Court on 11 March.

He was charged with three counts of making indecent images of children, possession of four child abuse images and possession of extreme pornography.

He is also charged with conspiring with others to incite sexual activity with a child under 13 and possession of ammunition.

The IPCC said it was managing the investigation by the South Wales Police public protection unit into the allegations against Mr Evans.

IPCC Commissioner for Wales Tom Davies said: "I am satisfied that this is being thoroughly investigated.

"It would be inappropriate to comment further now that the judicial process has started."

South Wales Police said the three others charged were a 49-year-old male from the Cardiff area, a 49-year-old male from the Neath area and a 54-year-old male from the Ross-on-Wye area.

They have also been remanded in custody to appear before Swansea Crown Court next week.
