Stalking a woman with flowers and letters ended up with a Porthleven nab being hauled before the courts.

Damien Kerry Martin, aka Osborne, of Wheal Road, appeared before magistrates in Bodmin.

He pleaded guilty to stalking Stephanie Richards between October 15 and 17, by leaving flowers on her car, posting her letters and turning up at her house between October 14 and December 1.

A second charge of stalking her, by banging on her front door on November 30, was withdrawn and incorporated into the first charge.

The 49-year-old also admitted "persistently" using a public electronics communications network to cause annoyance, inconvenience or anxiety in Camborne between August 17 and October 9.

Magistrates remanded him in custody from Saturday until this morning, for reports. He was subsequently remanded on unconditional bail until January 2, when he is due to be sentenced.
