Filipino sailor had child porn.

A FILIPINO seaman will be deported after he was caught with child porn when his ship docked.

Customs officials discovered Jimmy Camus had a disc full of obscene images when they raided his ship at Seaforth.

Liverpool Crown Court heard the married father-of-two had been working on the Greek ship MV Atermon as an engineer. But when dock officials boarded the grain carrier, the 30-year-old handed over the disc containing 24 images.

Images were also found on the hard drive of his computer.

Camus, whose family live in Manila, was arrested and questioned at Manchester Airport.

Camus has already spent 142 days in custody after being arrested on July 17.

Judge Gerald Clifton jailed Camus for 18 weeks, but ordered the time he has already served to count, meaning the Filipino's immediate release.
