A FELIXSTOWE Safeway worker was told to "move on and forget" a former work colleague who he stalked to her home.

Jamie Hubert pursued Claire Taylor as she walked home along Grange Farm even waiting for her outside the shop where she sought refuge.

South East Suffolk magistrates heard how 25-year-old Hubert ignored Miss Taylor's persistent requests to leave her alone.

Prosecutor Lesla Small told the court: "Miss Taylor saw the defendant riding towards her on a bike.

"When he saw her he turned round with his bike alongside her and continued to cycle even though she continued to tell him to go away.

"The victim went into a shop for a little while but when she came out he reappeared and continued riding all the way to her home where she called the police."

Hubert, of Runnacles Way, Felixstowe, admitted harassing Miss Taylor on November 25. He was arrested just over a week later on December 3.

Choosing to represent himself in court he said: "I am guilty. I do apologise for the incident. I know it's my own fault."

In convicting Hubert, chairwoman of the bench, Fenella Blastland , said: "There are certain aggravating facts in this case. Your actions were persistent and you didn't take the hint. We hope to make it clear you must move on and forget Miss Taylor."

Hubert, who earns £200 a week at Safeway, was ordered to pay £50 for the harassment and £55 costs. He was also bound over to keep the peace for a year.
