A man ordered not to contact his former girlfriend repeatedly messaged and texted her.

Michael Humphrey, 24, of Chesterfield Road, North Shore, pleaded guilty to breaching a non-molestation order.

He was bailed for pre-sentence reports and will be sentenced at a later date by Blackpool magistrates. Pam Smith, prosecuting, said Humphrey had been been put on the non-molestation order at Blackpool County Court which forbade him from contacting his ex in March.

Between September 22 and 27 he texted her on her mobile phone and left messages for her on a social networking site. He had one previous conviction for breaching the order.

Peter Manning, defending, told magistrates that Humphrey said his former partner had initiated the contact.
