A CARER for a 25-year-old man who was subject to a sexual offences prevention order spotted pictures of naked young girls on his phone.

Blackburn magistrates heard when police went to investigate Nathan Eccles handed over two internet enables devices but failed to reveal that he had a third.

Eccles, of Bacup Road, Waterfoot, pleaded guilty to breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order imposed by Burnley Crown Court in 2013. He was fined £120 with £85 costs and £30 victim surcharge.

Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said all the devices owned by Eccles had been seized by the police and sent away for detailed examination.

"That can take up to six months so the breach is dealt with immediately," said Miss Allan.

Ian Huggan, defending, said there had been three devices at his client's home three of which were handed over.

"He was resident in Calderstones until June when he was released into the community in supported living," said Mr Huggan.
