Man denies possessing 1.1 million indecent child images

A man has denied having more than 1.1m indecent images and videos of girls.

Kevin du Feu, 54, whose address was given as the Queen's Hotel, St Martins, Guernsey, is facing 16 charges including possession and/or distribution of indecent material.

Guernsey's Royal Court heard police examined six computer hard drives and discovered hidden and encrypted files.

Prosecutors said Mr du Feu was downloading a significant amount of material prior to his arrest in 2009.

The court also heard evidence from his ex-wife who had discovered some images while using Mr du Feu's business computer.

When pressed by the defence as to why she said did not report him, she told the court they had been going through relationship difficulties.

The trial continues.
