The son of legendary British comic RONNIE BARKER has pleaded guilty to charges of child porn possession after spending eight years on the run from police.

Adam Barker, 44, was first quizzed by cops over the allegations in 2004 and subsequently went into hiding before eventually handing himself in to authorities in July (12).

He appeared at Isleworth Crown Court in London on Friday (28Sep12) and pleaded guilty to 20 charges, stemming from indecent images of children found on his computer.

He faces up to five years in prison when he sentenced on 19 October (12).
