Funeral director 'caught with photos of corpses being sexually abused and tried to arrange abuse of young girl'

A FUNERAL director has appeared in the dock after he was allegedly caught with photos of corpses being sexually abused.

Nigel Robinson-Wright had extreme pornographic images of bodies – as well as photos of himself abusing a dog, prosecutors allege.

He's also charged with trying to arrange a sexual assault against a toddler.

Magistrates in Blackpool heard the defendant, 40, "would have had access" to the corpses in the photographs – and they "could be taken at his place of work".

The defendant, of Staining in Lancashire, was arrested following a probe by London's Met Police.

The undertaker is known in the area for his work with community groups.

He's also taken part in Armistice Day parades in Blackpool.

Robinson-Wright is charged with arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence, three counts of possessing indecent images of a child, and possessing extreme pornography.

Prosecutor Peter Kelly told magistrates: "The pictures in the charges also include sexual abuse of corpses he, as a funeral director, would have access to and which could be taken at his place of work."

The defendant was remanded into custody.

He will appear before a judge at Preston Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Wednesday, December 1.
