THE DISGRACED glam rocker Gary Glitter will not appeal against his four-month jail term for downloading child pornography from the Internet.

Lawyers for the 55-year-old musician said he was "very repentant" after pleading guilty at Bristol Crown Court last week to 54 charges of making indecent photographs of children.

His legal representatives announced after his conviction last Friday that they intended to appeal against the length of his sentence. But Henri Brandman, of the central London solicitors Henri Brandman & Co, said in a statement yesterday: "He accepts his punishment. There will be no appeal."

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, admitted the pornography charges after the court heard that his computer's hard disk had contained thousands of images of children being abused and tortured.
