A woman has been given a suspended two-month jail term by a judge after breaching an order barring her from knocking on neighbours' doors.

Claire Bowden had been ordered to stop "persistently knocking" on doors and ringing doorbells near her home in Shifnal in Shropshire.

A judge has decided that she breached the order after analysing evidence at a hearing at Telford County Court.
