Two people have been warned they face jail after admitting accessing CCTV footage of the post-mortem examination of footballer Emiliano Sala.
Sala, 28, had just signed for Cardiff City when the plane he was travelling in crashed into the English Channel, north of Guernsey, on January 21.
His body was recovered on February 6 and a post-mortem examination took place at Bournemouth Mortuary the following day.
A week later, police were alerted to an image on Twitter apparently showing the dead Argentinian footballer.
The image was removed from Twitter, but was subsequently shared to other social media sites.
Sherry Bray, 49, and Christopher Ashford, 62, appeared at Swindon Crown Court on Friday where they admitted accessing CCTV footage of Sala’s post-mortem examination.
Ashford, of Calne, admitted three counts of securing unauthorised access to computer material between February 9 and 11 this year.
Bray, of Corsham, admitted three counts of securing unauthorised access to computer material between April last year and February this year.
