An employee of RTE has been charged in the UK with attempting to engage in sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl.
The man traveled to Leeds on Saturday where he was confronted by a group of people who had created a fake online profile of a 13-year-old girl.
They alerted police and he was arrested and taken into custody.
After questioning police charged him with encouraging a girl to engage in sexual activity.
He remained in custody on Sunday night and will appear before Leeds Magistrates court on Monday morning to be formally charged.
