A MAN stalked his ex-partner after their relationship ended.

Blackburn magistrates heard Karl Seaton bombarded his ex with text messages, phone calls, emails and videos.

He also turned up at her home in Blackburn and her workplace. Parveen Akhtar, prosecuting, told the court Seaton had hacked into her Instagram account and private conversations on her Facebook page.

“On one occasion she was out with a friend when the waitress brought them drinks and said they were from him,” said Miss Akhtar. Seaton, 32, of Booth Way, Tottington, Bury, pleaded guilty to stalking which included monitoring her in person, through social media and a camera app.

He was remanded on bail for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
