A children's nurse nurse has appeared in court accused of child porn offences.

Belfast man Aaron Ravel (45) faces four charges connected to "graphic" material allegedly found on his computer.

It was stressed that none of the images are connected to his work. Ravel, of Cavehill Road in the city, is charged with making, possessing and distributing indecent photographs of children.

He is further accused of having an extreme pornographic image.

All of the charges relate to discoveries made in October last year.

Ravel is understood to have been suspended from duties since his arrest.

Standing in the dock at Belfast Magistrates' Court, dressed in a dark grey suit, he nodded to confirm he understood the alleged offences.

A detective constable said he could connect the defendant to the charges.

Defence solicitor Padraig O Muirigh stressed that the accused fully co-operated with police.

Judge Bagnall agreed to adjourn the case for 10 weeks. Ravel was released on continuing bail to return to court on July 31.
