A RESTRAINING order has been extended by a year after a man breached the terms.

At South East Northumberland Magistrates’ Court last Thursday, Sean Walker (30), of Umfraville Dene, Prudhoe, pleaded guilty to harassment by breaching a 12-month restraining order starting on December 2 by visiting the house of a woman on Christmas Day.

He was given a 24-month restraining order and an 18-month community order with a curfew. He was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £90, court costs of £85 and £20 in compensation.
