A former North Kesteven District councillor appeared at Lincoln Crown Court today (Thursday) accused of child pornography offences.

Ian Dolby, who is also a former Sleaford town councillor, faces three charges of making a total of 913 pornographic images of a child on a date on or before December 4, 2013.

Dolby spoke only to confirm his name and no pleas were taken at today’s hearing.

Judge John Pini QC adjourned the case for a further hearing to take place on September 29.

Dolby, 51, of North Road, Sleaford, was granted bail on condition that he has no unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 17.

Dolby was an Independent councillor who represented the Sleaford Quarrington and Mareham Ward until he resigned in April 2014 citing pressure of work commitments.
