'My 28,000 images of child porn are just like stamp collecting': Married civil servant's excuse for sickening stash
---
Steven Hawkins, of Hilperton, near Trowbridge, Wiltshire, catalogued and stored the vile pictures and films on CDs and DVDs, many of which he then protected with ten layers of encryption.

But the married 53-year-old told the police he got no sexual gratification and that he hoarded the vile images in the same way people collect stamps or coins.

The judge said: ‘Then possession came on the back of adult pornography, then possession in the form of some urge to collect images rather than getting any sexual gratification from it relating it to stamp collecting. It is very far from stamp collecting.'
