A HEREFORDSHIRE man has been up before the magistrates after making derogatory posts on Facebook.

Luke Hyde entered guilty pleas when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford.

The court heard the 35-year-old had breached a non-molestation order imposed in September last year by posting derogatory messages about a person protected by the order on Facebook on October 6.


He had also sent emails to the same person, which he was prevented from doing by the order, on January 30.

Hyde, of Elton Drive, Ledbury, was handed a 12 month community order and fined £40. He must also pay costs of £185 and a £95 victim surcharge.
