A Morrisons employee has appeared in court charged with fraud.

Andrew Skelton, a senior internal auditor, denied abusing his position to fraudulently disclose personal data at the supermarket chain's Bradford headquarters.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between November 2013 and March.

Mr Skelton, 43, from Liverpool, was granted bail by Bradford Magistrates' Court and will appear at the city's crown court later in the month.

The offences came to light following an investigation at the company's head office.

Mr Skelton is accused of using a computer to gain unauthorised access to a programme or data with the intent to commit fraud, knowingly or recklessly disclosing personal data, and conspiring to commit fraud by abusing his position.
