A per­vert who down­loaded so many in­de­cent images of chil­dren that po­lice cy­ber­crime of­fi­cers stopped count­ing once they passed half a mil­lion was jailed for 22 months yes­ter­day.

Bryan Reid, 46, was caught with 521,395 in­de­cent images of girls – rang­ing from new­borns to 15-year-olds – and nearly five days’ worth of porno­graphic videos which he stored in hard drives at his Buckie home.

Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tors even­tu­ally had to ad­mit it would take months of

ad­di­tional work if they were to cat­a­logue ev­ery de­praved im­age.

Sher­iff Chris Dick­son told Reid, of the Old Mariners House in the Yardie area: “Those who view such ma­te­rial cre­ate a de­mand and is part of the se­ri­ous abuse of chil­dren.”

Reid was also placed on the sex of­fend­ers reg­is­ter for 10 years.

Of the 521,395 in­de­cent images found, 5,270 were cat­e­gory A – the most graphic type – 6,468 cat­e­gory B and 509,657 cat­e­gory C. There were also 1,395 videos.

Reid had pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted tak­ing, per­mit­ting or mak­ing in­de­cent pho­to­graphs or pseudo-pho­to­graphs of chil­dren and pos­sess­ing them.
