Comedian Ronnie Barker's son has been remanded in custody charged with making indecent images of children.

Adam Barker, 44, of no fixed address, faces five counts - two of them are in the highest category of seriousness.

Mr Barker, the youngest son of the television comic, was first arrested in June 2003 as part of a police operation targeting people accessing indecent images of children on the internet.

He is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates Court again on 21 August.

As an actor, Adam Barker had small parts in films including Shakespeare in Love and Tomorrow Never Dies.

He has also appeared in TV shows such as Casualty, Monarch of the Glen and Wycliffe.

His father died in 2005 aged 76.
