Hancock, who appeared in court via a video-link from HMP Doncaster, was remanded back into custody by Judge Simon Hirst.

Judge Hirst told Hancock: "I will sentence you on 5 April. The fact I am putting off sentence does not mean you will not face a custodial sentence. The issue is likely to be how long."
