A PERSISTENT sex offender has been caught breaching a ban from travelling on the back seats of buses.

Jason Mallett of Byron Street Hove is already banned from travelling on trains or buses at certain times of day - after repeatedly exposing himself. He is also only allowed to sit on buses where he can be seen by the driver.

However, Mallet, 38, breached a previous sexual offences prevention order by sitting on the back seat of a Brighton and Hove bus.

Appearing at Brighton Magistrates' Court last Tuesday, he also admitted exposing himself.

He is due to be sentenced on June 29 - in the meantime his bail conditions ban him from travelling on any form of public transport.
