A STALKER has been told to stay away from his ex.

William Ferguson (38), of Evan Barron Road, Inverness, had been in a relationship with the woman for around eight months when she ended it, the city’s sheriff court was told. However, he struggled to deal with it and kept making contact despite being told to stop. The contact included calls, Facebook posts, WhatsApp messages and texts.

Fiscal depute Karen Poke said on one occasion the victim found nine pieces of paper behind her front door and when she checked her doorbell camera recognised Ferguson. He also kept asking a friend of the woman about her.

Ferguson admitted engaging in conduct likely to cause fear and alarm as well as a breach of undertaking for the offences between August 26 and September 28.

A year-long non-harassment order and community payback order with supervision for two years were imposed, plus participation in a domestic abuse programme.
