The trial date of a woman charged with harassment has changed.

Lauren Doyle, of Vinery Close in Clayton West, previously denied the charge.

It is alleged that she harassed Richard Hollinshead with numerous messages between September 30 and February 29.

Doyle, 31, claims that her computer was hacked and so she was not responsible for the messages.

Kirklees magistrates were told that more time was needed to instruct an expert witness.

They agreed to change the trial date to August 31.
