A couple who conducted a "sustained and unrelenting campaign of harassment" against a woman have been given suspended prison sentences after a judge expressed shock at the extent of their behaviour.

Between 2012 and 2016, the victim was subjected to malicious reports, covert filming and a listening device, and her medical records were illegally accessed in a hospital.

Alwyn Magee (58) and Marie Lindsay (50) both of Hillview Park, Enniskillen, admitted making false reports to police, the NSPCC and the victim's workplace superiors.
