Angry when ‘ex’ changed locks

Have your say

A man breached a court order when angry about his wife changing locks on their former marital home.

Samantha Harris had a missed call from Vernon Harris and then a message with swear words asking her to get to the house or he would go in through the windows.

He admitted breaching a restraining order when he appeared in court on Thursday.

Harris (47), of Chamomile Way, Spalding, was conditionally discharged for six months and must pay £40 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said Ms Harris had a further message via a third party asking for the house keys – the order was also designed to prevent indirect contact.

Solicitor Andrew Goldsborough said Ms Harris did not live at the address concerned. His client accepted the “abusive nature” of the call.
