A 20-YEAR-OLD university student from Kingswinford has admitted being caught with thousands of indecent photographs of children.

Daniel Wassell, of Kingsley Road, pleaded guilty to five charges of downloading the pornographic images and has been remanded on bail for a pre-sentence report.

Wassell was found to have around 16,000 images ranging from level one to a small number at level five - the worst category.

The student is scheduled to return to Wolverhampton Crown Court on May 7 when it expected the case against him will be finalised after being outlined in full.
