A HEREFORDSHIRE man has been banned from entering or loitering outside a bicycle shop after harassing two men.

Lee Frayling entered a guilty plea when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford after previously pleading not guilty.

The court heard the 43-year-old had pursued a course of conduct which amounted to the harassment of two men in Hereford between March 6 and April 4, subjecting them to insults and abuse via email and in person, and having unwanted contact with them.


Frayling, of Munderfield, Bromyard, was handed a 12-month restraining order banning him from contacting the victims or entering or loitering outside Coombes Cycles in Hereford's Widemarsh Street and a six-month community order.

He must also pay compensation of £200 and a £95 victim surcharge.
