DJ Pete Tong gets restraining order against singer Shara Nelson

  • @robhastings

Radio One DJ Pete Tong has been granted a restraining order against Shara Nelson, the former Massive Attack singer and songwriter, after she was found guilty of harassing him.

Ms Nelson, whose group's biggest hit was the 1991 single "Unfinished Sympathy", had claimed that she was his wife and subjected him to nuisance calls, a court heard.

She was given a 12-month community order and 80 hours' community service by West London magistrates.
