A man appeared in court accused of possessing indecent images of children.

Steven Telfer, 45, faced the charges when he was brought from custody at Ayr's sheriff court late last month.

The accused, whose general address was listed as South Ayrshire, faced a charge of taking, or permitting to be taken or making indecent images of a child.

It’s alleged he was also found in possession of indecent pictures of children and a third charge of distributing images.

The accused entered no plea when he appeared in the private petition hearing at Ayr Sheriff Court last week.

He was fully committed and remanded in custody.

He will return to court at a later date.
