The Protection from Harassment Act 1997 (“the Act”) created a criminal offence of harassment. Prosecutions under the Act have increased in recent years, particularly in relation to cyber activity. In addition it is possible to obtain a civil inunction under the Act known as a restraining order so as to prevent a person from being harassed.
