A mother sobbed as she pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a schoolboy in a cinema.

Jane Attwood, 36, lured the 14-year-old to Vue Cinema in London's Leicester Square, and performed a series of sex acts on him as filmgoers looked on.

Attwood had canoodled with the lad before taking him from Dagenham Station to London to see comedy movie Jackass 2 on December 9, 2006.

The mother of one stroked the schoolboy's genitals, and performed other sex acts upon him while sitting in the darkened cinema.

The next day Attwood phoned the boy to talk about their antics, but his mother became suspicious and forced him to confess.

Minutes before her trial at Southwark Crown Court, the chubby blonde pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual activity with a child.

Sitting in the public gallery, Attwood's young victim wept as he heard the charges read out.

The judge, Mr Recorder Andrew Trollope QC adjourned sentencing for reports to be prepared.

Attwood, of Lodge Avenue, Dagenham, pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual activity with a child.

She was granted bail pending sentence on April 25.
