A 19-year-old university student has admitted putting indecent pictures of a girl on the social networking site Snapchat.

Christien Lees-Jones of Fairfield Way, Wesham, and a student at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, admitted two offences of distributing indecent photographs of the 16-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

He also pleaded guilty to making an indecent photograph of a child – the same victim.

Blackpool Magistrates sent Lees-Jones for sentence at Preston Crown Court.

The Crown alleges that he took photos of the girl and then adapted them into pornographic poses which went online.

The defendant was bailed until February 10.

He must not contact witnesses and must not use Snapchat.
