PC Adam Burke of the Online Child Abuse Investigation Team said: “We received intelligence that Moxham may have been in possession of indecent images, and seizure of his devices confirmed this was the case.

“Moxham has now been jailed, giving him plenty of time to consider the consequences of his actions.

“I hope this sends a message that we will not stand for this type of offending in Lancashire and will do everything within our power to investigate and bring offenders before the courts.”
