A 19-year-old woman from West Yorkshire accused of posting Facebook messages encouraging rioting will go on trial later this month, a judge has said.

Hollie Bentley, from Wakefield, was arrested after she allegedly posted messages on the site on 9 August.

She appeared at Leeds Crown Court and pleaded not guilty to creating an event - "Wakey Riot" - on Facebook intending to encourage violent disorder.

Ms Bentley was given unconditional bail and will face trial on 28 November.

The judge said the trial would last for one day.
