A MAN sent a barrage of abusive text messages to the mother of his child.

Jason Byrnes bombarded the woman with hundreds of vile messages, Blackpool magistrates were told.

And when the number of messages reached 200 his victim informed police, the court heard.

Katie Marsden, prosecuting, said the couple had split up after a five-year relationship.

After sending all the messages the 31-year-old, of Douglas Avenue, Freckleton, was given an official warning by police.

But he carried on sending the abusive texts – on one day alone sending 16 messages – the court heard.

Byrnes admitted harassing his ex-partner and was bailed pending the preparation of pre-sentence reports.
