Dickinson had pleaded not guilty to all charges and arrangements were being made for a trial, but he has now pleaded guilty.

Wigan justices decided to remand him on bail until September 6 so a pre-sentence report can be prepared.

Dickinson must not contact the woman or anyone in her family and must not go to a named road in Ashton.
