A MAN appeared in court for sending a message to slur to a woman on Facebook.

Alex Francis called the woman a “two faced slag” in the offensive message.

The 29-year-old, of Elphick Road, Newhaven, admitted sending an indecent or offensive message at Brighton Magistrates’ Court.

It was sent with the “purpose of causing distress or anxiety”, the court was told.

He was given a conditional discharge, and must pay a £21 surcharge and £85 costs.
