Andy Kershaw jailed for three months

That it wasn't entirely unexpected doesn't make it any less upsetting: Andy Kershaw has been sentenced to three months inside after pleading guilty to breaching a restraining order:

Passing sentence, High Bailiff Michael Moyle said Kershaw's life was turning into a "Greek tragedy".

He added: "You seem hell-bent on destroying yourself and you do not seem to appreciate that the author of your destruction is yourself."

Mr Moyle told Kershaw that Miss Banner and Mr Imrie were "entitled to be protected from your unlawful activities".

He continued: "I genuinely regret that you, by your actions, have brought this state of affairs to pass.

"I regret that I feel I have no obligation other than to impose custody."

It's an increasingly sad story; let's hope - for everyone involved - this marks its lowest point.
