Richard Bugg, 37, appeared before District Judge Marie Malon sitting in Huddersfield yesterday.

He faces 21 charges of making an indecent photograph of a child.

Bugg faces a further 10 charges of possessing extreme pornographic images.

The child porn offences are alleged to have taken place at an address on Wakefield Road in Huddersfield.

Of the images allegedly made, 3,067 were level one photographs out of a possible scale of five.

This type of image involves children without sexual activity.

Three of the alleged images were considered level four, which shows sex between adults and children.

The other charges relate to Bugg’s home address in Campbell Street, Gainsborough.

There he is alleged to have had grossly offensive images portraying a person performing intercourse with animals.

Bugg denies all charges.
