A MILLOM man has been jailed after breaching a restraining order by posting a video on social media.

Aaron Lee Gow, of Queens Park, pleaded guilty to the offence when he appeared at South Cumbria Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old had been issued with a restraining order on May 15 after being convicted of harassing Nicola Mellen.

The two-year order prohibited Gow from approaching or contacting Miss Mellen, other than through a solicitor or Children's Services for the purposes of childcare arrangements, from entering Main Street in Haverigg and from posting anything on social media or YouTube relating to Miss Mellen.

On Wednesday Gow admitted posting a video on social media in which he mentioned Miss Mellen.

The offence happened on May 19 just four days after the restraining order was imposed.

Magistrates described the offence as a "deliberate breach committed days after the order was imposed which intended to humiliate the victim".

Gow, who was represented in court by Trystan Roberts, was jailed for 70 days and ordered to pay a £115 victim surcharge.
