A man has admitted kidnapping two children from a Stoke-on-Trent hotel in October last year.

Saleem Tahir, aged 40, of Kelso Gardens in Nottingham, pleaded guilty to two counts of kidnap and three counts of breaching a non-molestation order.

The children were later found unharmed at a guesthouse in Derby. They had been staying at the Quality Inn, Hanley, when police were called.

Tahir was remanded in custody to be sentenced at a later date.

He pleaded not guilty to four other charges, including dangerous driving and common assault, at Shrewsbury Crown Court on Tuesday.
