BROKEN hearted teenager Robert Knighton ignored a police warning, and continued to contact his ex-girlfriend by text and e-mail.
And on Thursday, the 19-year-old was in court, when he admitted harassing Emily Robson in Ely over a six-week period.
The couple broke up in March of this year, and Emily wanted no further contact, Ely magistrates were told.
But Knighton ignored her wishes, and on June 2 he was given a police written warning that he signed.
"He continued to contact her, she received calls on her mobile phone from a withheld number she attributes to him," prosecutor Laura Mardell told the court. "He contacted her by e-mail, and he asked her to cancel the harassment order.
"He also made contact with her in person, approaching her in town and when she was leaving work."

There were 12 incidents of contact after Knighton was given the written warning, she said.
Mitigating, Michael Judkins said Knighton had "taken it badly" when Emily Robson ended the couple's relationship. He contacted here because of the affection he felt, and to ask if she had been responsible for some rumours that were circulating.
There had been no contact since July 12, said Mr Judkins. "He has come to the view there is no purpose in making further contact."
Knighton was made subject to a six-month restraining order and fined £85 with £60 costs and a £15 surcharge.
