A stalker who terrified his victim and threatened to kill them has been jailed for nearly a year.

Paul Warren, aged 53, of Chestnut Lane in Amersham, has been locked up for 10 months for the horrific ordeal he put his three victims through.

On April 23, Warren stalked his victims, who cannot be named for legal reasons, causing them to fear that violence would be used against them.

The offender sent his victims abusive voicemails and messages claiming he would kill one of them, and also attended their address.
