A MAN has been warned he faces jail after he admitted possessing nearly 150 indecent photographs of children.

Peter Lloyd, 38, of Woodlands Terrace, Darlington, pleaded guilty at Teesside Crown Court to 16 charges of making indecent images of children between April 2008 and September last year.

He also admitted a further charge of having the photographs.

Lloyd spoke only to confirm his name and plea during a brief hearing, and the case was adjourned for sentencing reports to be prepared.

He will be sentenced on Monday, December 3, and was granted unconditional bail.
