A man who was found with a prohibited image of a child has been jailed for breaching a sexual harm prevention order (SHPO). 

Trevor Day, of Southey Green, in Sible Hedingham, near Sudbury, was sentenced to two years at Chelmsford Crown Court after he admitted breaching his SHPO 11 times. 

He also admitted two counts of failing to comply with notifications in connection with the sexual offenders register and possession of a prohibited image of a child.

The 51-year-old had the SHPO imposed upon him after he was convicted of a sexual offence in 2014. 

As part of the order Day was prevented from using social media, using any device that could access the internet or possess a phone not notified to police. 

During a routine check officers seized five devices that showed Day had contravened his SHPO conditions. 

Detective constable Carole Currey said: “Trevor Day knew that he was committing offences that breached his SHPO which was imposed by the court to protect our communities from the predatory nature of the behaviour displayed by Day."
