Curfew for Barrow man who texted ex song lyrics

A Barrow man was given a restraining order on Tuesday after sending his ex song lyrics in texts.

Kerry John Hubbold pleaded guilty at Furness Magistrates’ Court to harassment.

On October 9 last year, the 41-year-old, of Dartmouth Street, Walney, sent texts to Sophie Ditchfield. One read: “I am the resurrection.”

Mr Michael Graham, defending, said Hubbold had sent lyrics to Miss Ditchfield to express his feelings.

Hubbold was given a 12-week curfew, during which he must remain at home between the hours of 8pm and 6am.

He was given a four-year restraining order, banning contact with Miss Ditchfield.

He had to pay £85 legal costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Have your say

Bloomin' 'eck. You'd think he could find some better lyrics. Try some Burt Bacharach or Englebert Humperdink next time and you might have more success. I think Please Release Me would be quite apt after the restraining order.
