A MAN has been convicted of harassing a woman after he spied on her from bushes and threw eggs at her neighbour's house.

Ian Bridge, from Barrow, harassed the woman over a two-month period.

Magistrates were told how the 60-year-old embarked on a campaign of harassment of the woman between February 23 and April 10.

The court heard of a series of incidents involving him and the woman.

On February 24 he was said to have messaged and called her 'excessively' and attended her home in Blackpool.

Two days later he asked her for £20.

Court records said the following day he again attended her home and 'demanded' to take the dog to the park.

He also approached her asking if she had changed the PIN on her debit car and sent flowers, the court heard.

On March 3, he hid in a bush at the school pick up time and shouted at her.

He later sent flowers to her address and shouted through the letter box.

The following day he was said to have been near the property and after 9.30pm shouted through the letterbox removed a black tin.

In other incidents, he called the woman on March 7 and 'observed' her on March 9.

On March 10 he shouted her door and on March 12 he left her two voicemails.

Days later on March 18 he left a letter for her before sending her two friend requests on Facebook on March 25 and 27.

That was followed by an incident on April 4 when he visited her street and threw eggs at the house next to hers.

Then on April 9 he attended her street a poured a bottle of liquid over the bodywork of her car.
