An assistant principal and professional photographer was caught hoarding several hundred thousand child porn images on his home computer, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Surrey police said that they have arrested 48-year-old David Allison after being accused of installing hidden cameras in school bathrooms and recording young girls undressing.

Allison pleaded guilty to making indecent photos of children, recording private acts, and voyeurism at the Guildford Crown Court.

Judge Robert Fraser sentenced Allison to serve 3 years in prison and he was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

According to the police investigation, Allison worked for the BBC, where he read the news.

He also produced shows for television.

Later on, he became a teacher at the Chertsey school.

Allison was eventually promoted to assistant principal and was trying to become the principal of the school.

While Allison was the official photographer at the school, he installed hidden cameras in the bathroom and recorded young girls undressing.

Over a period of 20 years, Allison collected at least 635,902 indecent photos and 15,332 videos.

He kept the files on his home computer.

Police raided the home and seized the computer.

Internet searches revealed that Allison searched for “pre-teen,” “hardcore,” and “lolly.”
