A man who couldn’t have sex with an escort demanded his cash back – for seven months – Blackpool Magistrates’ Court was told.


Daniel Lloyd, 29, paid the man £20 deposit but asked for a refund after being unable to perform due to medical reasons, and then spent months sending WhatsApp messages and making phone calls.

Lloyd, of Horsebridge Road, Grange Park, even threatened to rape the man with a knife and hurt his family, the court was told.

In a victim’s statement, the escort said he had needed therapy and medication as a result of Lloyd’s campaign.
