A former midlands press officer for the Conservative Party has admitted possession and the distribution of indecent images of children.
Mark Lerigo, 49 of William Bristow Road, Coventry who was one of the party’s press officers for the region and a campaign manager, pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to

Distributing indecent images of children (IIOC)
Three counts of making IIOC
One count of possessing extreme pornography involving animals
One count of possessing prohibited images of children
One count of publishing an obscene article.

National Crime Agency officers arrested Lerigo in November 2018.
As well as the images, investigators found a WhatsApp chat with another offender discussing the sexual abuse of children.
Lerigo had an iPad which contained a total of 1,005 illegal images including 146 category A (the most serious) abuse pictures of children, and 258 images of extreme pornography.
He also had a laptop which contained evidence of a total of 414 illegal images – including 59 category A images.
He will be sentenced on August 21.
The Conservative Party confirmed last month that Lerigo had been suspended from the party with immediate effect, pending the outcome of judicial proceedings.
