Chippenham man charged with making child abuse images and possessing sexual films involving animals




A man from just outside Newmarket has been ordered to appear before a crown court judge next month charged with counts of making child abuse images and possessing sexual films involving animals.

Simon Bullock, of Tharp Way in Chippenham, is accused of three counts of making indecent images of children, and is alleged to have created more than 100 still or moving images.

The 53 year old is also accused of possessing extreme pornographic images involving animals, with the charges accusing him of having 14 films involving dogs and a horse.

Bullock has also been accused of two counts attempting to communicate with children on a messaging app in March last year.

Because the allegations against him are so serious when he appeared before Cambridge Magistrates' Court on Wednesday he did not have to issue a plea and was sent to the city's crown court.

Bullock was released on unconditional bail and was ordered by magistrates to appear at Cambridge Crown Court next month.
