Mum-of-three Amanda Playle was stalked by her husband Paul, who pretended to be an ex-boyfriend and sent her abusive messages. Amanda, 43, became a recluse and was on the brink of suicide after being followed and receiving messages calling her a “slag”. All the while, Paul was comforting his wife but was finally uncovered after police traced pictures he’d sent to Amanda on his phone.
Paul was jailed for three years last month for stalking and coercive and controlling behaviour. Amanda joins us to tell us about her harrowing experience and the the impact that this has had on herself and her children.
