A former Sleaford Town councillor and North Kesteven District councillor is to appear in court charged with making an indecent photograph of a child.

Lincolnshire Police have confirmed Ian Dolby, 51, of North Road in Sleaford has been charged with three counts of making an indecent photograph/pseudo-photograph of a child.

A spokesman said he has been bailed to appear before Lincoln District Magistrates’ Court on July 7.

He served as a district councillor for three years until his resignation from the Sleaford Quarrington and Mareham Ward seat on April 3, 2014.

He also stepped down as a town councillor about the same time having served on that authority since 2007, saying it was because of an increasing workload with his Sleaford based book-keeping business - Ian Dolby Business Services - meaning he was unable to attend council meetings.
