Help

TV personality Justin Lee Collins has been sentenced to 140 hours of community service for harassing his former partner Anna Larke.

Collins, 38, of Kew, London, was convicted at St Albans Crown Court of harassment causing fear of violence between January and July 2011.

Justice John Plumstead ordered Collins to carry out the unpaid work within 18 months and told him to pay £3,500 in prosecution costs.

Outside court Det Insp Justine Jenkins, who led the investigation, said: "I hope the outcome serves as a warning to anyone who thinks it is ok to treat another person in this manner."
