Fylde coast undertaker accused of 'having pictures of sexual abuse of corpses' and 'trying to arrange abuse of toddler'
An undertaker is accused of possessing "extreme" pornographic images involving corpses, a court was told.
Nigel Robinson-Wright, 40, of Chain Lane, Staining, is also accused of trying to arrange the sexual abuse of a toddler girl and having images of himself having sex with a dog, Blackpool Magistrates' Court was told today.
He was arrested after a probe by the Metropolitan Police.
Robinson-Wright, who has been involved in the annual Armistice Day parades in Blackpool and local community groups, was quizzed and 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 said: "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."
Robinson-Wright was kept in custody and his case sent to Preston Crown Court, where he was scheduled to appear on Wednesday, December 1.
