She pleaded guilty to harassment at Cambridge Crown Court today (Friday) and was jailed for eight weeks.

PC Matt Slater said: “Marshall knew she had done wrong but that doesn’t make her actions any better. The victim was left in genuine fear of her safety.

“I am pleased she has recognised her wrongdoing and hopefully this sentence will allow her to think about her actions more carefully in the future.

“I would strongly urge anyone who believes they are being stalked or harassed, to get in touch with us.”
