A former RTÉ producer will not be sentenced for child sex offences in Leeds until later this month.

55-year-old Kieran Creaven pleaded guilty in December to one charge of grooming a child and another charge of inciting a child to carry out a sexual act.

Leeds Crown Court heard that in both cases the child was 13-years-old and that in both cases Mr Creaven believed the child was not over the legal age of consent in Britain - which is 16.

He was caught after a British vigilante group used a decoy social media profile to arrange a meeting.

His sentencing hearing has now been put back until February 28th.
