A WOMAN has been given a restraining order after harassing a woman and damaging a window.

Julie Joanne Dyas, aged 39, admitted a charge of pursuing a course of conduct which amounted to the harassment of a woman in Sherborne on March 10.

This came after she had attended the victim's address, made a number of phone calls and sent messages that were all unwanted.

Appearing before Poole Magistrates' Court on Monday, May 25, Dyas, of Harbour Road, Sherborne, was given a community order and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £90 surcharge for the harassment offence.

She also admitted damaging a window belonging to the same victim on April 27, during the coronavirus lockdown.

Magistrates ordered her to pay £50 compensation.
