He went to work the next day and told colleagues of the engagement before later making a sham 999 call, saying he had found her dead.

Months before the December 2019 attack, he sent intimate photos of Ms Dunning to friends and family and set up a fake Facebook account in her name to control her, Portsmouth crown court heard.

He was convicted of murder and of disclosing private sexual photos with the intent to cause distress.

Brandford was not in court for the verdict as he is self-isolating in jail after being in contact with someone infected with Covid.

He will be sentenced on Friday.
