A 33-year-old woman from West Yorkshire is up before the beak after she admitted taking money from two couples for her unborn baby.

Moira Greenslade, 33, contacted the would-be parents via the Internet, eventually pocketing £2,500 from surrogacy agreements, Bingley Magistrates Court heard.

In one case, Greenslade received £1,000 from Peter and Sharon Robinson-Hudson. Mr Robinson-Hudson was to declare himself the baby's natural father; his wife could then apply to adopt after the birth. Greenslade later cancelled the deal via email.

She also offered the unborn infant to a Scottish couple in February last year.

Greenslade pleaded guilty to three charges of obtaining money by deception and three offences under the Adoption Act.

Magistrates referred the case to Crown Court for sentencing, noting: "Taking into account all the circumstances we have heard and the likely effects of the victims of your deception, these offences are so serious they deserve greater punishment than we can give in this court." ®
