A former public spending auditor who oversaw how £20 billion of taxpayers' money was spent has been jailed for eight months for downloading pictures of child sex abuse.

Jeremy Colman, 62, who stood down from his £170,000-a-year post as Auditor General for Wales in February, admitted making and possessing more than 170 indecent images.

A judge today said the "repulsive" pictures could only have been made by the abuse of children.
