A British man has admitted sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in the United States after meeting her online.

Adam Robinson travelled to California and carried out a "lewd act" on the child at a motel in Redlands between 15 and 23 December.

The 21-year-old, from Fleet, Hampshire, had denied six counts of committing "lewd acts upon a child" but changed his plea on one of the offences.

He will be sentenced on 7 May when the other five counts will be dismissed.

Papers from San Bernardino Superior Court showed a plea bargain was agreed.

Robinson will remain in custody ahead of sentencing.
