THE son of comedian Ronnie Barker, who spent eight years on the run, has admitted possession of child pornography.

Adam Barker, 44, was arrested in 2003 but failed to answer bail and was believed to have fled to France.

In 2005, police said they would allow him to attend his father’s funeral if he handed himself in, but he failed to return to the UK. Barker was arrested in July after attending a police station in west London by appointment.

He admitted 18 counts of making indecent images of children at Isleworth Crown Court yesterday, a member of the west London’s court staff said, and will be sentenced
at the same court on October 19.
