A Suffolk chef who had 300 indecent images of children on his mobile phone and computer equipment has denied downloading them.

Giving evidence during his trial at Ipswich Crown Court, Paul Dunn, 33, said he had no previous convictions or dealings with the police before they went to his home and seized two laptop computers, an external hard drive and a mobile telephone.

He accepted viewing adult pornography on the internet but denied knowingly or deliberately downloading indecent images of children.

Dunn, of Spashett Road, Lowestoft, has denied four offences of making indecent images of children on or before March 18, 2016, and one offence of possessing prohibited images of children.

The equipment seized was found to contain 55 indecent images of children in the most serious level A category, 66 level B images and 190 level C. There were also 96 prohibited images of children. The trial continues.
