The son of comedian Ronnie Barker has been jailed for a year after he admitted making indecent images of children.

Adam Barker (44) went on the run for eight years, living in Hungary, and missed his father's funeral in his attempt to beat justice.

At Isleworth Crown Court in west London, he was finally punished after admitting being in possession of 1,675 indecent images and videos and 20 counts of making indecent images of children.

Of the 1,675 images and videos, 92 showed children involved in penetrative sex.

He obtained the images between January 1999 and June 2003.

Barker paid for the images with his credit card, which alerted police who raided his home in Haven Lane, Ealing, west London, in the early hours of June 3, 2003.
