Child porn claims denied

A MAN accused of downloading child porn has been granted more time for experts to examine his computer.

Simon Reeve, 31, denies 16 counts of making indecent images of children and one of possessing indecent images of children.

The alleged offences are said to have happened on April 12, 2009.

A judge allowed his new defence team time for further experts to examine the computer at a Teesside Crown Court hearing.

The case was adjourned until a date to be fixed and Reeve, of Park Road, Hartlepool, was granted bail.
