A man has appeared in court after nearly 200 indecent images were found on a laptop.

Dutch-born Vincent Tabak, 36, was accused at Bristol Crown Court of possessing and making indecent photographs of a child.

The offences are alleged to have been committed between 2009 and 2011 and relate to images found on a laptop and an external hard drive.

Judge Neil Ford QC, the Recorder of Bristol, set the trial for 8 September.

In total, Mr Tabak faces four charges of possessing an indecent photograph/pseudo-photograph of a child.

He also faces two charges of making an indecent photograph/pseudo-photograph of a child.

The court was previously told the photographs included level three and four images. Level five is categorised as the most serious.

Mr Tabak did not enter a plea to the charges he faces and the case was adjourned until a pre-trial hearing on 26 August.
