Lesley Tock (63) was found guilty last month of causing fear and alarm to two families following a trial at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

She filmed her victims, made false allegations against them and behaved in a menacing manner between April 2018-September 2019.

She took photographs of the families on their properties and repeatedly approached their homes.

Today Lesley Tock was fined £1,100 and given a five-year non-harassment order.

Procurator Fiscal for Grampian, Highland and Islands Andy Shanks said: “Lesley Tock’s actions caused her victims significant anxiety, alarm, and had a profound and lasting impact on their lives.

“We take allegations of stalking seriously and continue to prosecute crimes of this nature effectively and fairly, using the full powers of the legislation available.

“I would encourage anyone who is the victim of this type of behaviour to report what is happening to the police.”
