A Kilwinning man who bombarded his ex with unwanted contact was ordered to complete unpaid work.

Connor Harvey, of Millside Gardens in Kilwinning, admitted causing his ex partner to suffer fear or alarm on various occasions over a two-week period.

Court papers state 20-year-old Harvey repeatedly sent unwanted emails, in which he swore, made offensive and threatening comments, repeatedly made unwanted telephone calls to her and repeatedly left unwanted voicemails containing offensive and threatening remarks.

This was at addresses in Kilwinning, Irvine and elsewhere in Scotland between July 9 and July 25 2017.

When he appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week, Harvey received a Community Payback Order and was ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work.
