A man sexually molested a 13-year-old girl in Blackpool.

Robert Wakes, a stallholder, 20, of Sandown Street, Manchester, pleaded guilty to sexually touching the girl.

He was put on the Sex Offenders Register and bailed for pre-sentence reports by Blackpool magistrates.

The court heard Wakes asked the girl for a hug, grabbed her bottom and asked her to go into the toilet with him on May 10.

The girl fled in tears to a friend’s home. Wakes was drunk and does not recall the incident.
