GP admits possessing child porn

Robert Manley
Indecent images were tracked to Robert Manley's computer

A Derbyshire GP has admitted possessing 6,000 child pornography images on his personal computer.

Robert Manley, who practises in Heanor, was arrested at his home on Wednesday after a year-long police investigation.

Detectives are still searching the 46-year-old's personal computer where the images - ranging in severity from category 1 to 5 - were found.

He appeared at Derby Magistrates' Court and was bailed to be sentenced at Derby Crown Court in March.

The court was told that the investigation had been started in Poland last March when police tracked computer users who were trying to upload indecent images of children.

One of the images was traced to Dr Manley's home computer.

Following his arrest, the GP was suspended from Derbyshire County Primary Care Trust.
