The harassment continued from June 14 to June 26 last year.

Despite her initial denial, Ms North changed her plea before trial and admitted the offence.

An offence of theft was dismissed when the prosecution offered no evidence.

Ms North has previous convictions for offences including criminal damage and possessing an offensive weapon, although the harassment offence pre-dates those.

Ms North was made subject to a 12-month conditional discharge and made subject to a restraining order forbidding her from contacting her victim, either directly or indirectly.

the order lasts for two years.

No order for costs was made but Ms North was required to pay a statutory victim services surcharge of £26.
