Written by Adam Hale

A former Plaid Cymru politician has been charged with making indecent images of children.

Simon Thomas, 54, quit the party and his role as an Assembly Member after he was arrested in July.

Thomas was MP for Ceredigion between 2000 and 2005, before joining the National Assembly for Wales to represent Mid and West Wales from 2011 until this year.

Dyfed Powys Police said on Tuesday he had been charged with three counts of making indecent images of children and would appear at Aberystwyth Magistrates' Court next month.

A spokesman said: "Dyfed-Powys Police can confirm that 54-year-old Simon Thomas from Aberystwyth has today (September 18) been charged with three counts of making indecent images of children and will appear at Aberystwyth Magistrates' Court on October 3."
