A 54-year-old Wigan man has admitted to being a phone pest for eight months.

Jason Chadwick, of Millgate, Wigan, stood before borough magistrates to plead guilty to a charge under the 2003 Communications Act that between August 7 2021 and March 23 2022 "persistently made use of a public electronic communications network for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another."

Sentencing was adjourned until August 10 for the preparation of reports.
