Sussex man pleads guilty to taking child

A 53-year-old man has changed his plea to guilty after a three-year-old boy went missing in East Sussex.

Stephen Howlett, of The Diplocks, Hailsham, was charged with one count of taking a child so as to keep him from a person having lawful control.

He was charged under the Child Abduction Act following an incident in 1 October 2010.

Howlett was bailed and is due to be sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on 3 October.
