Barrie Carton, 44, of West Avenue, Donnington, was due to be sentenced at Shrewsbury Crown Court on Tuesday, but the matter was adjourned for a further report.

Carton had previously admitted three counts each of arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence, distributing indecent images and creating indecent images. The offences took place between 2015 and 2019.

Judge Anthony Lowe ordered an additional report and told him: "I am sure you can appreciate that the offences are serious."

He remanded Carton in custody until August 18.
