Dean Richard Kelly, of Harrison Street, Barrow, will be sentenced in Furness Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 27 February.

Kelly admitted wasting police time on January 11.

The court was told Kelly had claimed a woman was stood outside his home with a gun, sparking a huge response from emergency services.

The 37-year-old has competed at the World Dwarf Games where he has won an array of medals – in August last year he received a silver medal following the 100m at the games in Michigan, in the United States.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be prepared, magistrates warned Kelly he could face jail as a result of his actions.
