Phone kid porn dad.

A DAD of three whose mobile phone was found in a street containing downloaded child pornography was jailed yesterday.

Michael Collins, 41, was found guilty by a jury last month of 13 counts of having indecent images of children. His conviction is thought to be one of the first in the UK for mobile phone child porn.

He was caught after a teenage girl found his phone near his girlfriend's house last year.

Sentencing Collins, of Whitwick, Leics, to a year in jail, Judge Michael Pert, at Leicester crown court, said: "These are disgusting images of very young children."

John Carr, of children's charity NCH, said: "When this gets on to mobile phones, it gets more difficult to detect."
