A 50-year-old Oldbury man, caught with sickening indecent photographs of children, has avoided spending time behind bars.

Darren Green, of Titford Road, admitted four charges of making the indecent images and also possessing extreme pornography.

He was placed on supervision for three years by Recorder Stephen Linehan QC at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

He must also attend the sex offenders programme and register as a sex offender for the next five years.
