His harassment charge includes a claim that between March 2022 and February 2023, he contacted a woman via Twitter in an attempt to pursue a romantic relationship.He is also accused of sending WhatsApp messages commenting on her appearance, confronting her in the Gaywood school regarding a grievance she had raised, and requesting that she attend Sandringham with him.The charge also alleges that he embarrassed her at a school assembly, spoke to her about pursuing a lesbian relationship, took photographs of her vehicle, and confronted her in an aggressive manner. In February this year, Hill was subsequently charged with breaking bail conditions which required him to notify Norfolk Police of all social media accounts he uses.He has also denied committing this offence. Hill, of Valley Way in Fakenham, has denied the allegations from the outset and launched a complaint against Norfolk Police after his arrest on March 6 last year – claiming he had a panic attack during the incident before being kept in custody for 15 hours.Tomorrow, his three-day trial gets under way at Lynn Magistrates’ Court. Two days of proceedings will take place in the town, before they conclude in Norwich.An application has been submitted for a Stalking Protection Order to be put in place.The application claims that Hill spread rumours that he and the alleged victim were in a sexual relationship and that he poses a risk associated with stalking her.
