A FORMER director of the body which runs the Great Yorkshire Show was jailed for two-and-a-half years today at Teesside Crown Court after a stash of images showing horrific sexual abuse of young boys was found at his home.

Police discovered the images on two computers at the home of ex-policeman Charles Littleboy in Howe, Thirsk, North Yorkshire.

He pleaded guilty last month to 11 counts of making indecent images of children, four counts of distributing indecent images of children, five counts of possessing extreme pornographic images, including some involving animals, and one count of possessing 3,904 indecent photographs of children.

Simon Reevell, defending, said his client was a shy and private man who now faced “utter humiliation”.

He passed a number of references up to Judge Peter Fox, the Recorder of Middlesbrough, saying: “They speak of a man wholly removed from these offences.”

Mr Reevell said Littleboy cared for his parents, who are aged 84 and 79.

Judge Fox accepted Littleboy’s reputation was ruined, but he added: “What you fail at present to appreciate is the utter humiliation and degradation of the victims of your crimes, both human and animal.”

He jailed Littleboy for two-and-a-half years, put him on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and banned him from unsupervised contact with children.

Littleboy is a former director of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, which organises the Great Yorkshire Show.

He was also a police officer with North Yorkshire Police in the 1980s, but none the offences occurred while he was employed by the force.
