Quote:

Police in Birmingham have launched an investigation after child pornography was found on a DVD disk bought at a Dixons store in the West Midlands.

The disk was part of software sold with a 200 CD rewriter.

The family that bought the hardware told the Birmingham Post that they were "totally appalled" by what they saw.

It seems the box containing the rewriter had been opened prior to it being bought.

Dixons said that this was an "extremely serious incident" and that it was cooperating fully with police.

In a statement the high street electrical store said: "We deeply regret the distress that this episode has caused and will do all that we can to identify the source.

"We understand that the police have now executed a warrant on a house in the Bordsley Green area of Birmingham, and are questioning a 34 year old man."

Dixons MD, Chris Langley, has already been in contact personally with the family that bought the CD rewriter to apologise for the incident.

You can quite imagine why people would be appalled by this, lets hope they get the scum responsible and feed him to the lions Evil or Very Mad

The person who had it before was a pervert and left it in, hence the police turning up at his house, and hopefully torturing him for several days Twisted Evil

Well this is more common than you think so you would think that Dixons would do better checks before they tried to sell secondhand goods as new.

Don't forget that a lot of these kiddie fiddlers are not 100% upstairs so it is safe to assume that they are not the brightest bulb in the box. So it is only a matter of time before they make a mistake (such as in this case) and get caught. It serves them right and I hope that when this guy is sent down, the rest of the inmates are told why he is there so he can soon find out what is like to be on the recieving end of some twisted monster Twisted Evil
