A man was arrested in Sudbury as part of a major national crackdown on child pornography.

A 44-year-old man from the town was one of 650 arrests made across the country on Wednesday.

In total, 10 men were arrested in Suffolk as part of the police campaign, which has seen every force in the country working together over the last six months.

“We can confirm Suffolk Constabulary received a number of referrals resulting in the arrest of 10 individuals to date,” said a spokesman. “All are currently on bail.

“In total, across Norfolk and Suffolk, 347 computers and related equipment, such as storage devices, were seized along with 36 mobile phones.”

Reports suggest that up to 431 children in the care, custody or control of suspects had been protected across Britain, with 217 said to be at immediate risk.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said teachers, medical staff, former police officers, a Scout leader and a social services worker were among those arrested.

The NCA said that only 39 of those arrested were registered sex offenders.
