A man bombarded his daughter with voicemails in a desperate attempt to re-start their relationship.

David Anderson, 51, of Warrenhurst Road, Fleetwood admitted harassment when he appeared before Blackpool Magistrates.

Philip Potter, prosecuting, said there was a history of issues between Anderson and the rest of his family.

At one stage the defendant was only allowed to write to his daughter four times a year.

However, after they started to talk on the phone, Anderson and his daughter agreed to meet but it was called off.

He then started a campaign of voice mails to his daughter’s phone. In all, there were 30 rambling messages from him.

Magistrates asked for pre-sentence reports on Anderson and he will next appear in court on July 22.
