A PLAY worker who pleaded guilty to making nearly 400 indecent images of children has been jailed for six weeks today (Wednesday).
Michael David Tombs, who was employed by Stevenage Borough Council from 1998 until 2002, now lives in Thorne near Doncaster and appeared for sentencing at Doncaster Crown Court.
The 33-year-old had previously pleaded guilty to five counts of making indecent images.
The 397 photos were made between May 1, 2006, and April last year, and included one rated as level five - the most shocking kind - and 55 as level four.
Tombs was sentenced to six weeks in prison for each of the five counts, to run concurrently.
He was also ordered to sign the Sex Offenders' Register for seven years.
