'Horror show' child porn collector Graham Capocci jailed

A man who downloaded more than 250,000 indecent images of children, with some victims aged only two, has been jailed.

Graham Capocci spent seven years amassing the library, which was dubbed a "horror show" by Judge Peter Davies.

Carlisle Crown Court heard police raided the 44-year-old's Wellington Row home in Whitehaven last year and seized computer equipment.

Capocci pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent photographs of a child and was jailed for a year.

The hearing heard how hundreds of the images were said to be classed as category A - the most serious.

Hundreds more were listed as category B and 235,000 were ranked in category C, the court heard.
