A BUSINESS director got a restraining order for intimidating his millionaire neighbour by flying a Jolly Roger flag. Paul Loughlin, 54, targeted wealthy garden designer Doreen Mitchell, 70, because she refused to move her compost heap. Doreen reported him for noise which he said was just mowing his lawn and she called cops when he used a disc saw. The rift began in 2009 when Loughlin complained to the council about the compost in Doreen’s garden in Edgefield, Norfolk. The following year, police ticked him off about the pirate flag — which Loughlin said was for his grandchildren. A string of harassment claims followed, before he was eventually convicted in 2015. Doreen told Norwich JPs she was afraid to walk past Loughlin in the street, claiming he would laugh and sneer at her. She said she felt “intimidated, humiliated and utterly helpless”.

TOUGHER sentences for stalkers have been rolled out in a drive for harsher punishments to reflect the severity of the crime. The government has increased the maximum sentence for people found guilty of stalking. Is stalking a crime in the UK? Stalking became a crime in the UK in 2012 when the Government changed the law to cover actions including following or spying on someone. Cyberstalking - such as inundating someone with unwanted messages online - is also covered by law. Before the Protections of Freedom Act made it a specific crime, police had to wait until stalkers committed another crime - such as harassment or breaching a restraining order - before they acted. Harassment includes bullying and making violent threats to the victim or their family, whereas stalking covers any kind of unwanted attention - such as sending unsolicited gifts or following someone.
