A 57-year-old man has pleaded guilty to owning and making indecent images of children on his computer at Southwark Crown Court, London on Friday in what police have described as the largest ever seizure of its kind from one individual.
Robert James Barrow, 57, pleaded guilty to offences under the Section One of the Protection of Children Act 1978 and will be sentenced on September 16.
It is believed that some of the vile and disturbing videos and images of children being sexually abused seized at Barrow’s Plaistow, London address by the Metropolitan’s Paedophile Unit were at level five which is considered to be the most serious of their kind.
It took Â Paedophile Â Barrow over 15-years to collect the one million sick images and videos of children which he shared with other Paedophiles.
Detectives working on the case said:
“This is the largest seizure of indecent images of children that the met’s Paedophile Unite has discovered from one individual.
“Barrow’s activities were on an industrial scale.
“This investigation demonstrates the commitment of the Metropolitan Police to target Paedophiles both on and offline.
“This is not a victimless crime, as each indecent image of a child possessed or distributed represents a child that has been abused in order that the image can exist.”
