A paedophile who had 1,887 indecent images has been jailed for eight months.
Aaron Wall, 45, of Terrace Road, St Leonards, appeared at Lewes Crown Court on Tuesday where he was sentenced after earlier admitting 11 offences of making indecent images of children and two of possession of extreme pornographic images.
The court was told Wall had 1,887 indecent images including level five images, which are the most severe, and ten extreme pornographic images.
A warrant had been executed at his home on November 1, 2012.
Wall was arrested and later released on police bail pending the examination of computer items that were seized during a search of his home.
Detective Constable Kenny Stark said: "We will follow up information about this type of offending, whether it comes from law enforcement as in this case, or from members of the general public."
