More now on Ian Chambers, of Grange-over-Sands, who has been given a suspended jail sentence after child abuse images were found on a laptop.
Some of the pictures in Chambers' possession were classed in category A - the most serious. A number of the children depicted were estimated to be aged as young as five.
Chambers admitted 10 counts of making an indecent photograph of a child. The offences were committed between 2005 and 2014. He was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court today.
As well as his suspended prison term, Chambers must sign the sex offenders' register and is subject to the terms of a sexual harm prevention order for the next 10 years.
A man who had scores of illegal child abuse images on his laptop has been spared an immediate prison sentence.
Ian Chambers, 67, of Jack Hill, Allithwaite, Grange-over-Sands, was caught by police officers who raided his South Cumbria home and seized computer equipment.
Almost 200 illegal images were found on a laptop and 40 indecent films were recovered from an external hard drive.
At Carlisle Crown Court, Judge Barbara Forrester gave him an eight-month jail sentence suspended for two years. He will undergo 24 months' supervision and complete one-to-one group work.
Eight clubs in Copeland have been awarded £41,182 from Sport England’s Flood Relief Fund to help with the Storm Desmond clear up operation.

Following the sentencing of Gavin Fletcher for stealing a £50,000 mayoress's badge, a Carlisle City Council spokesman said: "Unfortunately, this has been an extremely stressful incident for council officers, who had worked so hard to support Carlisle residents and to keep the business of the council moving following the December floods.Copyright: Cumbria Police
"This stress can never be reimbursed by Mr Fletcher. Nor can he ever reimburse the citizens of Carlisle for the loss of this piece of local history.
"The badge can never be replaced with its original diamonds and features as Mr Fletcher's actions ensured that these were lost forever.
"A piece of history has been lost for the sake of a few hundred pounds in cash."
The royal visit to Cumbria has provided a welcome boost, locals say.
Miles MacInnes, chairman of the parish council, said of Prince Charles's visit to Pooley Bridge: "It's been absolutely marvellous because we have had a very difficult three months.Copyright: PA
"The village has been like a ghost town. To have the bridge open we suddenly had people here again and after Prince Charles' visit we now have a spring in our step."
The former stone bridge across the River Eamont at Pooley Bridge was destroyed by Storm Desmond in December.
The community faced long diversions, but a new temporary bridge has allowed easy onward travel to other parts of Ullswater and the wider Lake District.
Speaking as Prince Charles visited Pooley Bridge earlier, Penrith and the Border Tory MP Rory Stewart said tourism was now "going to really take off".
He added: "It's Cumbria at its very best. You've got hundreds of people lined up on the streets. It's wonderful. It makes me very proud of Cumbria and proud of Britain."
The region is still recovering from the devastating floods last year which washed away the bridge:
Hopefully Prince Charles has got his woolly jumper on when he meets these chilly guests waiting for him in Keswick:
The Prince of Wales raised a glass of Guinness and declared Cumbria "open for business" as he returned to the county three months after the devastating floods of Storm Desmond.

He heard how the historic Grade I listed structure across the River Eamont was washed away as he met contractors who have installed a temporary bridge, which officially opened on Sunday.
The Sun Inn's landlords, John and Jane McGuire, said they had prepared some Cumberland ale and a cup of Earl Grey tea, but when offered a choice the prince opted for half a Guinness.

On his visit to Ullswater Community College in Penrith, Prince Charles was given a guided tour of its Applied Learning Centre by headteacher Nigel Pattinson.

Pupils aged 14 to 18 are able to take advantage of a range of vocational training opportunities at the school, which has developed a close relationship with The Prince's Teaching Institute.
Cumbria County Council's Courts building is to be lit up purple on Saturday to mark a global day of epilepsy awareness.
The Epilepsy Action charity is encouraging people to take part in purple-themed events and challenges, and Trafalgar Square is among the other landmarks that will be lit.
Purple Day was created in 2008 by then nine-year-old Cassidy Megan, a Canadian girl living with epilepsy.
She came up with the idea as a way to dispel the myths surrounding the condition and raise awareness positively. Epilepsy - the tendency to have seizures - affects about one in every 100 people in the UK and 87 people are diagnosed with the condition every day.
It's time for the county's best young athletes to compete for the pride of their school and where they live.
Thousands have taken part in qualifying events for the Cumbria School Games 2016, and the finals are under way at Penrith Leisure Centre.
More now on the sentencing of Penrith man Gavin Fletcher, who stole the £55,000 mayoress's ceremonial badge from Carlisle Civic Centre.
The city's crown court heard that having seen the distinctive gold item in a room, he "gave into temptation".
He snatched the 117-year-old badge before breaking it into tiny pieces, some of which he sold for around £500. It had been part of the mayoral regalia since the 1940s.Copyright: Cumbria Police
The court was told Fletcher also later stole a water pump from the civic centre. When he later confessed to all his crimes, he told police he planned to use this pump to help stricken residents near his home town and "make a little bit of money".
A security guard has been jailed for stealing an historic mayoress's badge from the flood-ravaged Carlisle Civic Centre.
Gavin Fletcher was looking after the Rickergate building after it was deluged by flooding during Storm Desmond in early December, although he was not directly employed by the council.
The 35-year-old, of Roman Road, Penrith, has been jailed for a total of 30 months by Judge Peter Davies at the crown court today.
He had pleaded guilty to a total of eight crimes which were committed during December and January.Copyright: Cumbria Police

More now on the story we brought you earlier about Cumbria's mental health care and community healthcare services coming in for criticism from the chief inspector of hospitals.
The Cumbria Partnership Trust has been told it "requires improvement" in the safety, effectiveness, responsiveness and leadership of the services it provides, following an inspection which took place in November.
Dr Sara Munro, director of nursing and quality at the trust, said: "That's a fair judgement of where we are across all out of services. Overall, our staff were rated good across every single service... we've got a strong platform to build on.
"We really need to focus on the consistency in the quality and clinical standards of our services.
"The report has not found any immediate issues of safety or concern about the quality of care that is given. They can see we are on a journey of improvement, we need to continue that."

Dairy farmer Margaret Wilson, of Thackwood Farm, Southwaite, is taking part in today's march.
She said: "You can survive a few months like this - perhaps a year if you haven't borrowed too much.
