The offences took place around April last year in Lytham.

Prosecutor, Martine Connah, said the indecent pictures of children Wynn had in his possession were both moving and still images.

Brett Chappell, defending, said his client had pleaded guilty to the indecent images of children offences at the first opportunity.

Wynn was put on the Sex Offender’s Register and bailed to appear for sentence on September 21 at Preston Crown Court by Blackpool magistrates.

He must live at an address other than Linnet Lane, Lytham, and have no unsupervised contact with any child under 17 without prior arrangement with social services.
