And, as if by magic...
The Old Bill found "indecent images of children" on his laptop, please fuck off!
1. The inference that there must have been "worse" pictures there once cos he had deletion/wipe applications on his PC
2. I seriously doubt there were any that weren't added after arrest, or at worst as he was 16, they could have been pics of his girlfriend, if she's under 18 he's screwed, in both senses. The UK has some fucked up laws on this shite
