Man in court over child-porn charges

An Alnwick man has appeared in court accused of child pornography offences.

Brian Allen, 34, of Monkhouse Terrace, Alnwick has been charged with five counts of making indecent images of children and possession of them.

Allen spoke only to confirm his name at Newcastle Crown Court last Thursday and no plea was given.

He was bailed to appear at the same court on August 27 for a plea and case management hearing.
