No action was taken against Taylor for the street photos, as they were not illegal.

Sentencing Taylor at Hull Crown Court, Judge Jeremy Richardson QC said it was a serious case as the pornographic images featured the sexual torture of children.

"Each and every one of the images was utterly revolting," he said.
