Mr Lawson also offered no evidence in relation to making two category A indecent images of children – a still image and a moving image, and a single charge of possessing an extreme pornographic image involving an animal.

Judge David Melville QC recorded not guilty verdicts on the charges.

Dujon is due to be sentenced on August 9. He had denied all of the previous charges.

A 16-year-old boy from Fareham, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted being concerned in the supply of cocaine and will be sentenced at Portsmouth Youth Court on a date yet to be fixed. A conspiracy charge against him was dropped.

At the hearing prosecutors dropped the conspiracy charge against Michelle Osborne, 44, of Ocean Close, Fareham. She had denied it.

Addressing Dujon, judge Melville said: ‘I’m going to order a pre-sentencing report, it’s in your interest to co-operate with the probation service in the writing of that report.’
