A Gravesend man has been jailed for three years after he was caught with a horde of child abuse films with a combined running time of almost three days.
John Appleton was jailed at Maidstone Crown Court on June 16 after admitting a string of offences.
The 62-year-old was arrested after officers from the Kent Police Child Exploitation Investigation Team identified a computer with his internet protocol address had been accessing indecent images of children.
"The redistribution of these images just encourages and perpetrates a cycle of abuse.
"Our investigators will continue to strive to identify and bring to justice anybody involved in the production or possession of these vile images."
