The court heard that in March 2021, police executed a warrant and seized 9 electronic items from Knight’s home, 7 of which contained illegal material.

Ann Smout, prosecuting, detailed how Knight admitted to downloading the images and engaged in sexual conversations with others, speaking of very young girls.

Magistrates adjourned the case to the Isle of Wight Crown Court for sentencing on May 20.
