Belfast man facing trial over child porn

A Belfast man is to stand trial accused of a catalogue of child porn offences, a judge has ruled.

Philip Hull is charged with 25 counts of having indecent photographs of children.

The 36-year-old, of Waveney Drive, faces a further charge of encouraging someone else to distribute indecent photos.

All of the alleged offences were committed between January and October 2011. Hull appeared before Belfast Magistrates' Court to decide if the case should proceed.

A prosecution lawyer contended there was a prima facie case to answer and sought to have him returned for trial at Belfast Crown Court.

Deputy District Judge Joe Rice granted the application and released Hull on continuing bail until that hearing gets under way.
