A MAN who confronted his ex-partner and posted the video online has been convicted for harassment.

Arron Lee Gow, 30, was charged with harassment without violence and pleaded guilty to the offence when he appeared before South Cumbria Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Gow, of Newton Street, Millom, was said to have shouted abuse at his former girlfriend outside the home of her friend on April 28.

Gow was said to have placed a note on the woman's car and waited for her outside.

When she got out he accused the woman of providing information to the police and called her derogatory names.

He filmed the incident and posted it on a Facebook page he ran called Against Police/Judge Campaign.

He told magistrates he would take down the video he posted on Facebook.

The court sentenced him to 120 hours and ordered him to pay £100 in compensation to the victim.

Magistrates served him with a restraining order, banning him from contacting the woman or from Haverigg's Main Street.

He was also ordered not to post anything in relation to the victim online.
