A man has admitted harassing his ex-girlfriend by sending her numerous text and photo messages last weekend.

David Hampson, 31, of Mornington Road, Hindley, sent the messages to Lucy Calderbank after their two-and-a-half-year relationship had ended, Wigan And Leigh Magistrates’ Court heard. He pleaded guilty to harassment and the case was adjourned until Friday, July 22 so a report could be prepared before sentencing.

Hampson was released on bail with conditions not to contact Ms Calderbank or go to the street where she lives, and for childcare arrangements to be made via his mother.
