A 15-year-old boy was given drugs by a 36-year-old mother-of-three to keep him awake for sex, a court has heard.

Caroline Lea is said to have slept with the youngster on a regular basis for several months before he said he needed to find a girlfriend of his own age.

The defendant, from Blackpool, Lancashire, is also accused of taking part in a threesome with another 15-year-old complainant and his young friend, as well as allegedly sexually touching a third boy of the same age.

Lea denies committing any sexual offences and told police that the threesome allegation was ‘nonsense’.

A jury at Preston Crown Court heard evidence from her accusers including a youth who said Lea initiated their first sexual encounter by inviting him to her bedroom to watch a film.

In his police interview, the complainant said he pushed Lea away on her bed when she tried to kiss him but ‘changed my mind because I’m a lad’.

He said the defendant performed oral sex on him before they had intercourse in several positions.

He said: ‘We did everything really. Everything you name, everything she wanted to do.’

The interviewing detective asked him: ‘What ended that first sexual encounter?’

The teenager replied: ‘We stopped because we were tired.’

He added: ‘Sometimes I was a bit tired and she would give me speed (amphetamines) to stay awake.’

Asked what made him decide to stop the alleged relationship, he said: ‘Because it was wrong, because I’m 15.

‘I have a life ahead of me. I have got to go out and get a girlfriend of my own age.’

Lea, of Clifton Drive, denies seven counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child on various dates between December 2013 and March 2014.

She has also pleaded not guilty to one count of allowing her home to be used for smoking cannabis and a separate count of supplying amphetamines, a Class B drug, to another.

The trial continues on Wednesday.
