A Catholic friar has been accused of possessing more than 5,000 indecent images of children.

Friar Timothy Gardner, 41, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday where he faced 11 charges relating to 5,005 images.

Some were graded as level five – the most extreme content.

Gardner is based at St Dominic’s Priory in Southampton Road, Gospel Oak, and has taught philosophy and religious education at Maria Fidelis Catholic School, in Phoenix Road, Somers Town.

He will next appear at Southwark Crown Court on February 24.

He was released on bail on condition he does not have contact with anyone under the age of 18 without supervision.
