A man convicted for making pig noises at his neighbours has been accused of breaking a restraining order made against him within 24 hours.

Stephen Aylott, 53, was sentenced on May 28 after spending more than four years harassing neighbours from his housing association bungalow in Eleanor Close, Woburn.

But he allegedly broke the order within 24 hours and has now been ordered to live at his mother’s address in Arlesey until another hearing.

The 53-year-old continually slammed doors and windows to unsettle his next door neighbours, attempted to drive into their vehicle and would run his lawnmower every time they went into their garden.

He would also taunt them over their weight by making oinking noises, referring to them as ‘pigs’.

On Thursday morning Luton Magistrates’ Court heard that within just 24 hours of the sentence being handed down Mr Aylott broke the terms of his restraining order by jumping out in front of his neighbour’s moving car, “making a silly face” and then running back into his home.

The neighbour was forced to perform an emergency stop and was “left shaken and with fear”, the court heard.

It is also alleged that two days later the 53-year-old repeatedly slammed the windows and doors of his home to unsettle his neighbours.

Mr Aylott denied both charges and the case has been adjourned until on October 1.
