Sentencing was adjourned until June 21 to allow for the preparation of pre-sentence reports. 

The Recorder of Sheffield, Judge Jeremy Richardson QC, remanded Muscroft and Liversidge into custody, and told them it was ‘very likely’ they would both be sent to custody. 

He said: “I expressly state: it is very likely you will be sent to custody. 

“The only issue for me is what form of sentence, and how long it will be.”
