A former council employee from Northumberland has pleaded guilty to charges including voyeurism and possessing indecent images of children.

Liam Gormley was suspended by Newcastle City Council after he was arrested and subsequently charged with 29 offences following a police investigation when images were seized.

The 32-year-old from Blyth pleaded guilty to 27 charges at Newcastle Crown Court earlier.

He will be sentenced on 26 October.

A council spokeswoman said staff had been informed of the outcome of court proceedings and confirmed Gormley no longer worked for the authority.

The charges related to voyeurism, possessing indecent images of children and possessing extreme pornography.

They relate to locations across the North East including leisure centres, a holiday camp and a dance studio.
