A WHITBY man who faced 19 counts relating to sexual offences pleaded guilty to all the charges at York Crown Court on Monday.

Glenn Smith (22), of Rose Avenue, admitted the offences, which occurred at his home address between March 2006 and February 2011.

He faced 14 counts of making indecent photographs of a child and three counts of possessing indecent photographs of a child for distribution.
