A Canadian man accused of stalking the model Claudia Schiffer at her Suffolk home is to be deported.

Louis Alexandre Brisette, 21, was arrested after repeatedly calling at the German's home last week, and handing over two letters for her to staff.

He even returned to the mansion near Bury St Edmunds, just hours after appearing in court on harassment charges on Saturday.

The following day he was handed over to immigration officers after it emerged he was in the country illegally.

It is the second time that Ms Schiffer has been subjected to unwanted attention. Last year, an Italian kitchen porter, Agostino Pomata, was detained under the Mental Health Act after allegedly harassing her several times at her home. French-speaking Brisette, who is unemployed, first called at Ms Schiffer's house on 8 March asking to see the model. He gave a letter to staff but kept turning up at the house uninvited, alerting staff. Police kept warning him to stay away.

A police spokesman said: "He was staying here illegally and he is now being deported. It is not known how long he had been here."

The spokesman added: "Ms Schiffer and her family have asked for their privacy to be respected and do not want to discuss the details of the case."

The model lives at the mansion with her husband Matthew Vaughn, a film producer, and their young son Caspar.
