The former Lord Mayor of Leeds, Neil Taggart, has been jailed for 32 months after admitting possessing and distributing indecent images of children on his computer.
The 65-year-old, seen here in 2004, was also the former chairman of the West Yorkshire Police Authority and a Leeds city councillor for more than 30 years. He pleaded guilty to eight offences.
Leeds Crown Court was told Taggart downloaded thousands of images, many involving extreme pornography.
Calendar's David Hirst was in Leeds Crown Court today when Taggart admitted eight offences - and was told his reputation has been destroyed.
