Former BBC local radio DJ Alex Belfield has been found guilty at Nottingham Crown Court of four stalking charges against broadcasters including Jeremy Vine.

Jurors convicted YouTube radio host Belfield on four counts after deliberating for 14 hours and 27 minutes.

Belfield, 42, of Mapperley, Nottingham, showed no emotion and wrote on a piece of paper as verdicts were delivered.

He was found guilty of stalking BBC Radio Northampton presenter Bernie Keith and videographer Ben Hewis, and convicted of ‘simple’ stalking in relation to presenter Vine and theatre blogger Philip Dehany, meaning stalking without alarm or distress.

Belfield was found not guilty of stalking charges in relation to the BBC’s former head of North Rozina Breen, former BBC Radio Leeds presenters Liz Green and Stephanie Hirst, and former BBC worker Helen Thomas.
