Is it illegal for a 29 year old man to have sexual contact with a 15 year old boy in UK if the man didn’t know the boy was underage?

This is messed up so say hypothetically this boy gets the man to touch him in appropriately in a public toilets without the man knowing it is him and then later he follows the man on social media and reveals that it was him.  Then continues to video call the man and do inappropriate things and send inappropriate pictures.  Then he bribes the man into buying him a phone and then tells the man he is 16 and gets the man to meet up and do inappropriate things and give him a phone.  Is it wrong if it’s later discovered the person is possibly underage but it wasn’t known at the time.

    Age of consent in the UK is 16, so yeah, that would be a problem.

    It is still illegal.
