A paedophile from Queen’s Park has admitted downloading thousands of sickening images some featuring children and animals.
Edmund Lynch, 53, of Fifth Avenue, was caught with the indecent images following an undercover police operation into a notorious film company.
Westminster Magistrates Court heard he downloaded 4,105 photographs January 2010 and August 2015.
They included 19 images at the most serious Category A featuring children and bestiality.
Officers raided his house after he was identified as a customer who bought videos and DVD’s made by Azov films in Canada.

“The police officers conducted undercover operations identifying cases in more than 94 countries who had purchased videos and DVD’s made by Azov films.
“He [Lynch] had ordered sexual pictures and videos, and stored them on digital equipment.’
Mr Aydin told the court there were also 268 images at Category B and 3,818 at Category C.
Lynch pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent photographs.
Bench chair Penny Hatfield sent the case to Southwark Crown Court for sentence on a date to be decided.
She said: “There is a small number of category A, but due to the number of images, this court does not have the sentencing power.
“We also take into account the scale of time that these images were accumulated.”
