A PENSIONER who pleaded guilty to inciting a child to engage in sexual activity had his case adjourned by a judge.

Kevin Escritt struggled to hear the proceedings at Teesside Crown Court, despite using a hearing loop, and was allowed to leave the dock and approach the judge's bench in order that he could do so better.

The 76-year-old, of Eddison Way, Hemlington, Middlesbrough, was due to be sentenced, but Judge George Moorhouse adjourned the case after hearing of a new development which he said put a “different picture” on the whole case.

Escritt was bailed and will reappear at court on April 21.
