Carlisle man admits harassing women at community centre

A 34-year-old man has admitted harassing women workers at a Carlisle community centre.

John James Atkinson of Springfield Road, Harraby, admitted harassing four women by making phone calls between October 8 and 11 which were “indecent, alarming and distressing’.

Carlisle magistrates court heard how he insulted a member of staff and made inappropriate comments.

Defence solicitor Martin McAllister said Atkinson was “very remorseful” and wanted to apologise. He had a bad experience at the community centre some years ago and was under a lot of stress caring for his mother and coping with personal issues.

The case was adjourned for reports. Atkinson will be sentenced on December 23.

No. Patients deserve better. We're at risk so long as hospitals aren't good enough

I don't believe hospitals in Cumbria will ever achieve the excellence they've promised
