A JEAL­OUS man drilled a hole in his ex-girl­friend’s ceil­ing so he could spy on her from the loft.

Mark Thomas, 45, went to her house in Fleet­wood, Lancs, with­out her knowl­edge to drill holes in her ceil­ing.

The en­gi­neer was found by po­lice hid­ing in the loft af­ter the woman saw a pile of dust on her bed­room floor and looked up to see a small spy hole in the ceil­ing.

Thomas had been dumped in Septem­ber for cheat­ing but re­fused to ac­cept the seven-and-ahalf year re­la­tion­ship was over, Pre­ston Crown Court heard.

Thomas, of Black­pool, Lancs, ad­mit­ted stalk­ing be­tween Oc­to­ber 1 and 28 last year.

The judge sus­pended his six-month jail term for two years and im­posed a 40-day re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ac­tiv­ity.
