A man sexually molested a paramedic as she tended to him in the back of an ambulance.

Mark Fricker, 46, of Hammerton Place, Grange Park, pleaded guilty to sexually touching the woman.

Fricker was bailed for pre-sentence reports and will be sentenced later by Blackpool magistrates.

Martine Connah, prosecuting, said Fricker collapsed in a Blackpool street and was put into an ambulance on June 20.

He was heard to make a comment about one of the female medics, then when she turned away, he touched her inappropriately.

Paul Robinson, defending, asked for reports on his client.
