Ashley James Lawrence, 27, from Tennyson Drive has been remanded on bail by Milton Keynes magistrates.

He is charged with intentionally attempting to communicate with a girl he did not reasonably believe to be aged 16 or over. The charge says the communication was "sexual - namely to obtain sexual gratification."

Bail was granted in order for pre-sentence reports to be prepared. A condition that there was no unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18 was imposed.

Pre-sentence reports were ordered by the court
