A stalker who terrified classical violinist Vanessa Mae has been jailed for a week and ordered never to go near the musician again.

DAVID MARTIN, 56, was convicted of breaking a court order which stipulated he must not approach or contact the stunning 25-year-old.

According to court papers, Martin spent eight years obsessed with Mae, bombarding her with love letters and keeping track of her movements.

Mae's boyfriend LIONEL CATALAN recently spotted him walking past her home in Kensington, West London and immediately informed police.

This is the second time Martin - who hails from Brighton, south England - has been before a court over the issue. He admitted harassment during a court hearing last Christmas (03).
