A man who went on trial accused of asking a 14-year-old schoolgirl to send him intimate photographs of her body on Snapchat has been found not guilty.
Darren Kay, 36, was cleared of all charges by a jury following the hearing at Minshull Street Crown Court.
Mr Kay, of Royal Avenue, Heywood, was accused of two counts of inciting sexual activity with a child and a single count of causing a child to watch a sex act.
The case opened on Monday, and the jury returned its verdicts on Friday after a five day trial.
During the trial, the jury was told that the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told Kay her true age.
Mr Kay was accused of asking her to send him photos of her breasts after swapping Snapchat details.
