Alex Watts : What you need to do is keep a diary and photos of everything that is going on.
Alex Watts : Then you could apply to the county court under the protection from harassment act
Alex Watts : The court can consider whether to grant an injunction to stop harassment.
Alex Watts : The law states
Alex Watts : (1)A person must not pursue a course of conduct—
Alex Watts : (a)which amounts to harassment of another, and
Alex Watts : (b)which he knows or ought to know amounts to harassment of the other.
Alex Watts : If satisifed the judge can grant an injunction, which is breached is considered contempt of court which can be punished by a warning, fine, prison for all of these.
