A medic who finished with his girlfriend and then stalked her in Fleetwood has been banned from contacting her.

Robert Wilding engineered meetings with her and left her a message telling her she was in his will before saying that he was going to do something.

Wilding, 51, of St Peters Place, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to harassing his ex between November 20 and 22.

He was fined £360 with £85 costs and ordered to pay a £150 court charge plus £36 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

He was put on a two-year restraining order which bans him from contact with his ex, or entering the boundaries of St Theresa’s School or Harris Avenue.

Rachel Parker, prosecuting, said in October this year Wilding ended the relationship.

She said he then bumped into her when she was walking her dog, went out for a drink, and he called and sent messages.

In a victim’s impact statement she said after Wilding ended the relationship he hounded her. She worked with children and had a breakdown at work. She was frightened in her own home.

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said Wilding, a solider for 22 years who had no previous convictions, now accepted his behaviour had not been appropriate.
