A man accused of having an indecent image of children was yesterday banned from being alone with anyone under 18.

A judge imposed the restriction on Kieran Anthony Hagan (57) as he appeared before Belfast Magistrates' Court charged with five offences.

The defendant, from Ardenlee Crescent in the south of the city, faces counts of making, possessing and distributing an indecent photograph of a child or children.

He is further accused of having an extreme pornographic image and possessing an image of a child prohibited by the Coroners and Justice Act.

A police officer told the court that he believed he could connected the accused to the alleged offences.

After prosecutors asked for a six-week adjournment, the defendant was released on continuing bail of £500.

District Judge Mark Hamill ordered him to have no unsupervised contact with any child under 18 unless approved by social services, and to return to court on September 12.
