German man admits sex with teenage girl in Dorset

A man from Germany has admitted having sex with a 14-year-old girl after she went missing from her home in Dorset.

Benjamin Philipp, 19, pleaded guilty to five charges of sexual activity with a child between 3 and 4 March this year.

He admitted arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sexual offence but denied a charge of meeting a child following sexual grooming.

The prosecution accepted the pleas and the German national will be sentenced on 10 June at Bournemouth Crown Court.

The defendant has not given the court a more specific address.

The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was later found safe and well.
