  Man who stalked S Club Tina is jailed
Updated 19 August 2003, 14.49
Steven Hindley will be in jail for six months
A man who sent threatening e-mails to ex-S Club star Tina Barrett has been sent to prison for six months.

Steven Hindley, 41, also sent her loads of chocolates, flowers and teddy bears.

But when the 26-year-old singer didn't reply to any of the messages, he started sending much nastier ones, threatening her life.

He was sending around three e-mails to her from different addresses, as well as claiming to have brain cancer and only three weeks to live.

In one he said she would be shot while performing on stage in Canada, while in another he said he was waiting outside her house to hurt her.

Hindley has a kind of autism - which is a type of brain disease - and the magistrate said he had taken that into account when sentencing him.
