A 50-year-old man has admitted a string of sexual grooming offences when he appeared at Norwich Crown Court.

Kevin Ward, of no fixed address, had already admitted four offences at a previous hearing including attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity and attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child.

Ward has now also admitted a further two similar offences of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity,

Judge Stephen Holt adjourned sentence until March 19 and ordered reports, including one which will assess the danger Ward posed. A psychologist report is also being sought in time for Ward’s sentencing hearing.

Ward, who was wearing a grey tracksuit top, was remanded in custody.

Judge Holt warned Ward that his sentencing should go ahead on that date in March unless there were ““exceptional” circumstances.
