Following a search of his home and analysis of his computer, investigating Officers found he had downloaded 50,000 indecent images of children from the internet.
Officers would like to be clear that their investigation found absolutely no evidence of any offences in relation to Rudge’s former profession as a child photographer.
Rudge, from a village near Lincoln, is now barred from working with children and ordered to register on the Sexual Offences Register for life.
The answer is both. A man who had previously been convicted of hare coursing in Lincolnshire has now been imprisoned following an investigation into a £100m drug dealing ring.
CCTV of Jaffray and two associates was shown to the court – the trio were seen celebrating New Year’s Eve with table service at an exclusive Edinburgh hotel and bar, spending thousands of pound on drinks and rooms whilst meeting with clients who they hoped to do business with.
Chief Inspector at Lincolnshire Police, Phil Vickers says: “For some time we have said that hare coursing can be linked to organised and serious crime and this conviction is another example of this.
“Jaffray was convicted of a hare coursing offence in Digby Fen earlier this year, handed a fine and a Criminal Behaviour Order was imposed on him preventing him from coming to Lincolnshire with dogs that could be used for hare coursing.
“This was a major result for us as this was also the first time that we managed to rehome a dog that had been used for hare coursing. The dog in found in his possession was called Lucky and a court order saw it taken away and placed in the care of loving owners.
“We will continue to tackle hare coursing and take every opportunity to share intelligence with other force’s to ensure that any organised crime is fully exposed.”
If you have information about hare coursing please call Crimestoppers on 0800 783 0137 to report anonymously. Alternatively call 101 or 999 if there is a risk to life.

As part of this year’s world suicide prevention day people affected by suicide are invited to come together to remember those who have touched their lives.
The Lincolnshire branch of Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide, supported by local NHS organisations Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) and United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT), will be hosting a free memorial event as part of their on-going commitment to suicide prevention in the county.
Taking place between 7pm and 8pm on World Suicide Prevention Day on Monday 10 September at the Showroom in Lincoln, the memorial is open to anyone affected by suicide including family, friends, health and social care staff and emergency services.
Attendees have the opportunity to meet others affected by suicide and remember their loved ones.
There will be a short multi-faith memorial, with time for reflection and the opportunity to place personal dedications on a tree of remembrance.
Local charities and support organisations will also be on hand to talk about how they can support someone affected by suicide.
Dianne Tetley, Lead for the Lincolnshire branch of Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide, said:
“This year’s world suicide prevention day theme is ‘working together’ and the memorial is a great opportunity for us to speak with one voice to highlight the importance of working together to save lives and support those bereaved or affected by suicide.
“In Lincolnshire we recognise that suicide isn’t just about those who may be struggling to cope, but also those who may have lost someone to suicide, or been affected in some way. We want to create a support network, where people can talk openly about suicide and receive the support they need.”
Dr Sue Elcock, Medical Director at Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“The effects of suicide can be devastating and the impact can be felt widely in a community. Suicide is often the end point of a number of complex factors and distressing events, but often people don’t give any indication that they might be having suicidal thoughts and may never have had a problem with their mental health previously. Simply asking people how they are, listening and being supportive can make a real difference.”
Rev. David Knight, Senior Chaplain and Bereavement Service Manager at the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, said:
“The devastating effects of a death by suicide on family, friends, colleagues and amongst professionals involved in the care of the individual cannot be underestimated. This memorial service offers the opportunity for anyone connected with a death by suicide to come together, to reflect, to remember, and as a community to support those in a similar position.”
The event is open to all, with no need to book. Doors open at 6:30pm.
