Labour Party city councillor Steven Bayes has been charged with making and hoarding rape images of children. The Labour councillor, who represents the Orchard Park and Greenwood ward, appeared at Hull Magistrates Court on the morning of Thursday 27 April.
The court heard the charges involved a “large number” of images. Dressed in a dark blue suit, the 55-year-old Labour politician who lives in Prospect Street in the city centre did not speak during the five-minute hearing. He was remanded on conditional bail until May 26 when the case will be heard at Hull Crown Court.
Deputy district judge Frank Appleyard said the charges he faces were “too serious” to be dealt with in the magistrates’ court.
