JUST minutes after being served with a non-molestation order, 60-year-old Cyril Wiltshire banged on the door of his ex-partner's home and threw stones at her window.

Earlier that day Wiltshire had come home from work to find the locks changed, and was handed the court order, Fenland magistrates were told.

He failed to read the document, but instead tried to contact his former partner Caroline Rose Corbett.

"Police received a report that he kept banging on the door and threw stones at the window, trying to get her attention," said prosecutor Scheherazade Haque. "She relented, and spoke to the defendant."

"He had only just been served with the order. He came home to find the locks had been changed, and half an hour later he was given the paper. He was already in the process of speaking to his partner. The relationship had lasted 14 or 15 years, the trauma of the break down had been difficult."

"I have made it crystal clear the order must not be breached again," she added. "There is now some degree of acceptance of the break down of the relationship."

Wiltshire was fined �150 and must pay �85 costs and a �15 surcharge.
