Ronnie Barker's son jailed for child porn

The son of the 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. But yesterday at Isleworth Crown Court in west London, he was punished after admitting being in possession of 1,675 indecent images and videos and 20 counts of making indecent images of children.

The comedian's youngest son was arrested in 2003 when a computer seized from his home in Ealing, west London, was found to have thousands of indecent images of children on it.
