A former presenter on Chinese TV has been jailed for a year for having more than 800 extreme porn videos, including footage of women being tortured.

Sen Luo, 40, of Park Avenue, Dover, Kent, had more than 800 video images on his laptop and hard drives, which also included bestiality.

Police found the porn by accident while conducting an unrelated fraud inquiry.

Luo was convicted at the Old Bailey last month of possessing extreme pornography.

Jurors found him guilty of two counts of possessing the videos by a majority of 11-1.

'Part of research'

The court heard suspicions were raised when Luo, who also uses the name Edward Law, refused to answer the door of a house he was living in in Copthorne Road, East Grinstead, West Sussex.

He claimed the images were part of his research of a Chinese Sex and the City-style book.

He said he thought it would be a way of making money after fleeing China, where he presented an economics programme, in 2008.

Judge Charles Wide said Luo had amassed an enormous amount of extreme pornography over a period of time.

After last month's hearing, Det Con Kim Negus, of City of London police, said she had to view the videos with the sound turned down because of the screams of the women.
