Elstob is due to appear at Newcastle Crown Court.

Steven Elstob was arrested after police were alerted to his presence in an unlet room at the site in Stockton Road, despite him having ceased employment as a lift engineer there.

Glenda Beck told magistrates in Sunderland he was in possession of various keys to the building and a telescope, when he was detained.

The 46-year-old entered no plea to an offence of trespass with intent to commit a relevant sexual offence.
