CHILDREN were sexually abused in video footage found in the home of an Eynesbury man, magistrates have heard.

James Woolage, 34, has admitted 20 offences of making and possessing indecent images of children.

Credit card details found on an American website containing child pornography allowed police officers, as part of the transatlantic Operation Ore, to trace Woolage to his home address in Linley Road, St Neots, the court heard.

On searching the property, officers found discs to contain video clips featuring children, prosecutor John Goodier said.

"One disc was found to contain 30 video clips, a number of which contained children being sexually abused or committing sexual acts," he said.

When interviewed, Woolage could not remember when he downloaded the information but accepted it had been on his computer, which police later analysed and found the file creation date to be May 7, 2004.

Woolage, 34, pleaded guilty to 16 offences of making indecent images, one charge of possessing indecent images on June 27, 2005, and asked for three more offences of making indecent images of children to be taken into account.

Mr Goodier said that three of the items found corresponded to the most serious level of content - level five - and some of the video footage was over 20 minutes in length.

Magistrates decided their powers were insufficient to sentence Woolage for the multiple offences and committed him to Crown Court for sentence.

A certificate of conviction was also issued and Woolage was bailed unconditionally to attend Peterborough Crown Court later this month.
