The 21-year-old of Wigod Way, Wallingford, is also charged with attempting to cause a child under the age of 13 to look at an image of a person engaging in a sexual activity.

He also faces two further counts of making indecent images of children, namely two in category B, and 45 in category C; the lowest category.
