AN ex teacher who exchanged lewd pictures with a schoolgirl has had his sentencing adjourned to December 12.

Lloyd Garratt, 32, of Liverpool Walk, Chorley, admits three counts of inciting a child into sexual activity.

Judge Jacqueline Beech, sitting at Preston Crown Court, said she needed to see further evidence of the content of the messages.

The former Garstang Community Academy teacher’s hearing was watched by the victim’s family, pupils, teachers and his relatives.
