He was arrested in Leeds

A former RTÉ TV producer convicted of sex offences in the UK is due to be sentenced today.

Kieran Creaven from Dublin pleaded guilty last December to attempting to groom an under-age girl.

The 55 year old had engaged with a fake Facebook profile, set up by a group called 'Predator Exposure'.

He was reported to police when he flew to Leeds to meet the fictitious girl, and was confronted by the group.

Creaven is to appear for sentencing at Leeds Crown Court later.
