A MAN has been warned he is facing jail after he admitted grooming a 13-year-old girl and having sex with her in his van.

Craig Mann, aged 29, of Flanders Close, Redditch, pleaded guilty to two charges of meeting a girl following sexual grooming between March 1 and July 31, 2013.

He also admitted two charges of sexual activity with a child, once in his car and once in his van.

Judge Michael Cullum ordered him to immediately register as a sex offender and warned him he would be facing a custodial sentence when he returns to Worcester Crown Court on November 7.
