A woman downloaded more than 1,500 indecent images of children, including some in the most serious category, a court was told.

Lynne Grummitt’s laptop computer was found to contain 691 indecent images of children at category A – the worst kind – 617 at category B and 291 at category C.

A further 24 indecent images of children, categorised at all three levels, and two pornographic images of adult bestiality were found on her mobile phone and a hard drive.

Police also found Grummitt had been talking to four men via the Kik chat app on her phone, between February 2020 and February 2021, about their shared interest in children and exchanged indecent photos.

Grummitt, 39, of Mill Corner, Soham, was arrested and three electronic devices were seized from Burnaby Close, Brampton, on September 22, 2020

On Monday she appeared at Cambridge Crown Court after admitting three counts of making an indecent photo of a child, two counts of distributing indecent photo of a child and possession of an extreme pornographic image.

She was given a two-year prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work.

Detective Sergeant George Neal said: “Our priority is to protect vulnerable children and thanks to some great police work Grummitt has been exposed as a high risk to children.

“We will not tolerate this type of crime and I urge people to contact the police if they have suspicions.

“This can be done on the force website online, on the phone using 101 or anonymously on Crimestoppers.”

People who are concerned someone may have been convicted of a sex offence, and could be posing a risk to someone, can apply for disclosure information through Sarah’s Law on the force website.
