A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Bafta-winning actor Adam Deacon who failed to appear in court.
The 31-year-old was due at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court, in west London, on Monday morning accused of harassing Kidulthood co-star and writer Noel Clarke.
The actor allegedly posted abusive and threatening messages on social media relating to Clarke.
Deacon, who won a Bafta rising star award in 2012 for directing urban comedy Anuvahood, was due before magistrates at 10.45am, but when he failed to appear an hour later, the warrant was issued.

He is accused of one count of harassment without violence between March 5 and December 19 last year.
The actor, who is also a rapper, played firearms officer Robbie in Channel 4 police drama Babylon, shown last year.
He is best known for playing main character Jay in the films Kidulthood and its sequel Adulthood.
He was due to make his first appearance in court after being charged on 20 December.
Deacon’s bail conditions stated that he was not to contact Clarke or any member of his family or friends, and was not to post anything online that is related to Noel Clarke.
