A GRANDSON has avoided prison after harassing his grandmother for £1,440.

James Campbell, 22, of White Lion Walk, Gosport, repeatedly asked her for the cash between February 1 and June 22.

He admitted harassment on July 20.

Portsmouth magistrates gave him a three-month jail sentence suspended for a year. Campbell must complete 20 days of rehabilitation activities.

A restraining order bans him from contacting Christine Dawling for five years. Campbell must pay £1,000 compensation.
