A man has been handed a suspended sentence for possessing explicit material involving a large fish.

Nelson Nazare (45), from St Neots in Cambridgeshire, was sentenced yesterday at Huntingdon Law Courts after pleading guilty to possession of the material. He also pleaded guilty to harassing his wife. 

In August, Cambridge Magistrates' Court heard the 45-year-old man's marriage had broken down earlier this year. The court heard he had approached his wife on several occasions in June.

Two of these incidents involved him following her in his car. The first time he pulled over and indicated for her to do the same. The second time he drove alongside her and gestured through the window.

The third incident, on 25 June, he approached her outside her home. This prompted his wife to drive to the police station, whom she called from the inside of her car. 

Police discovered the extreme pornography when they confiscated his phone investigating harassment claims made by his wife. 

On the phone they found two pornographic videos involving a woman and a dog, and one involving a man having sex with a large fish, Cambridge News reports. 

Nazare had previously deleted one of the videos involving a woman, but it was recovered by police.

His lawyer Kevin Warboys, defending the explicit material, said: "One of Mr Nazare's friends, knowing how sad and upset he was, sent him three images in what seems to have been a misguided attempt at distracting and amusing him.

"There does not seem to be any content that Mr Nazare might find arousing. He believed he had deleted them all. He had not kept them for any purpose that might be of greater concern."

Warboys added that Nazare was "desperately upset and worried" after the break-up of his marriage.

Nazare was given a six week sentence suspended for 12 months, with the sentences to run concurrently. He was also ordered to pay compensation of £85, a victim surcharge of £80 and a criminal courts charge of £150.
