NO ACTION will be taken against a man linked to a laptop containing child pornography bought at a Mersey market.
Former Sefton councillor Jack Colbert paid £60 for the computer at Bootle’s Stanley Road market in July 2011.
He handed it in at Copy Lane police station after finding indecent images on it.
Officers arrested a 50-year-old Crosby man on suspicion of an offence under the Sexual Offences Act.
But the Crown Prosecution Service has now decided not to charge the man due to lack of evidence.
Mr Colbert today criticised the decision.
