A British man has been charged in the United States with sexual assault after allegedly flying there to meet a 13-year-old girl.
Adam Robinson, 21, is accused of committing a "lewd act upon a child" six times between 15 and 23 December.
Mr Robinson, from Fleet, Hampshire was arrested at a motel in Redlands, California.
He is due to appear at San Bernardino Superior Court on Monday. His bail has been set at £620,000.

The girl turned 14 on Christmas Eve.
