A Wigan man whose stalking of a doctor included placing a tracker on her car will be sentenced in November.

Kelvin James, 58, of Church Drive, Orrell, has previously appeared in the dock at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates’ Court to plead guilty to the single charge of pursuing a course of conduct which he knew or should have known amounted to harassment and stalking.
