A MAN who admitted stalking a woman will appear in court next month.

John Storey (29), of Bradley Road, Prudhoe, appeared at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court last Friday after pleading guilty to a charge of stalking at an earlier hearing.

The court heard that between April 17 and 30, Storey had contacted his victim a total of 18 times and threatened to follow her after he received treatment from her to assist with his learning difficulties.

The case was adjourned to South East Northumberland Magistrates’ Court on September 16 for pre-sentence reports to be prepared.
