As he appeared in the dock, Sutcliffe – who left YorkshireLive earlier this year following a suspension – was told the sentencing hearing would be moved back to Leeds Magistrates’ Court and would be adjourned until February 7 to allow reports to be prepared by the Probation Service.

Court documents show the charges relate to four different victims.

The indictment for the first offence stated that Sutcliffe sent numerous unwanted messages and put numerous posts on social media causing the victim to feel harassed, alarmed and distressed. The second offence, against the same victim, related solely to social media posts.
