Councillor in child porn charge

A Labour councillor from Liverpool has been charged with downloading indecent images of children.

Ben Williams, 34, of Norris Green, was arrested by officers from Sefton Family Crime Unit last December.

He answered bail on Friday afternoon and after being questioned he was charged with 12 counts of making indecent images of children.

Mr Williams was released on bail and is due to appear before South Sefton magistrates on 8 May.

He agreed to suspend himself from the Labour party during the police investigation last year.
