DOZENS of indecent images of children were found on computer equipment seized from a former police sergeant’s home, a court heard.

Grampian Police officer Neil Shand, 51, was detained after forensic officers recovered data from a desktop computer and a pen drive during a raid on his house.
The retired sergeant is alleged to have been in possession of child pornography at his home in Aberchirder between December 2008 and 2010.
He is on trial at Banff Sheriff Court facing two child pornography offences which he denies.
He is accused of being in possession of indecent images and further claimed to have taken photographs or permitted them to have been taken.
Shand, of 28 North Street, Aberchirder, denies the two charges and has lodged special defences of alibi and incrimination.
