A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man accused of throwing fish guts round the offices of a top Sussex solicitor.

Christopher Fagg is accused of harassing Jolyon Holden over the course of three years.

On one occasion it is alleged he flung fish entrails and sour milk around Mr Holden’s offices, Holden and Co Solicitors, in Robertson Street, Hastings.

Mr Holden runs chains of solicitors across Sussex and Kent including in Brighton.

Fagg, 56, of Redgeland Rise, St Leonards, was due in Crawley Magistrates’ Court today to enter pleas to three counts.

He is charged on August 22 with harassment.

The specifics of this offence are “for approximately three years you have regularly called and visited the office of Holden and co solicitors and then in August 2013 you began to attend the offices leaving notes on the window and shouting outside the offices.

“On August 22 you then attended the offices and committed criminal damage by throwing fish entrails and sour milk on the carpet.

“On August 23 you attended the offices and poured a brown substance over the front windows of the offices.

“On August 28 you sent an abusive letter to Jolyon Holden and on September 11 after being arrested and bailed for this harassment you left a threatening message on the answer phone of the offices.”

He is also accused of criminal damage on August 22.

It is alleged he damaged the doormat and floor of the offices of Holden and Co solicitors.

He did not turn up for court and magistrates issued a warrant.
