A CONVICTED sex offender admitted to police carrying out a compliance visit that he had deleted his internet history after each session.

Blackburn magistrates heard Simon Lee Robbin also admitted viewing indecent images of children on a Russian website.

Robbin, 30, of Leeds Road, Nelson, pleaded guilty to breach of a sexual harm prevention order. He was sent in custody to Burnley Crown Court to be sentenced on January 18.

Parveen Akhtar, prosecuting, said the sexual harm prevention order had been made on July 27 2011 after Robbin was convicted of downloading indecent images of children.

She said following the latest compliance visit the defendant's computer had been seized and would now be examined by police experts.

"There may be further charges in the future relating to any images that are found as a result of that examination," said Miss Akhtar

Deann McGinty, defending, said her client suffered from mental health issues but fully understood the situation he was in.

"He has admitted in his interview he can't help himself from committing these offences which clearly makes him a high risk of further offences," said Miss McGinty.
