Shelagh Shares Her Stalker Story
Shelagh Fogarty opens up about her very recent experience with a stalker.
For three days running, she spotted the same young man sat in her train carriage and then saw him outside the LBC offices in central London. When Shelagh put it to the test, she discovered that the man was following her.
Despite the fact that Shelagh wasn't frightened, small things around the house were causing her to jump out of her skin and she went to the police.
The story is a stark reminder of how unsettling it can be to find yourself on the receiving end of unwanted attention. Take a watch above and if you're experiencing anything similar, contact the police on 101.
