A WOMAN who stalked Steven Saunders has been banned from making any further contact with the celebrity chef.

Dawn Shadrack, 45, was also given 100 hours' community work when she appeared on remand for sentence at Cambridge Magistrates' Court on Monday.

She had been convicted at an earlier hearing of harassing Mr Saunders, who ran The Sheene Mill restaurant in Melbourn, and lived in Ashwell.

At an earlier hearing, the court was told that Shadrack bombarded Mr Saunders with text messages and visited him at his restaurant over a 15-year period.

Emma Dmitriev, prosecuting, had described Shadrack, of Arlesey, as living in a "fantasy world".

In total, she was thought to have sent 1,000 text messages and made hundreds of telephone calls.

Shadrack was ordered to pay £250 towards the prosecution costs.
