The British government has “unreservedly” apologised to BBC presenter Emily Maitlis for its failings after stalker over two decades contacted her from prison via a letter.

47 year old Edward Vines was jailed for three years back in September 2016 after twice breaching an indefinite restraining order that Maitlis had obtained against him in 2009. The two had previously been friends, having met at Cambridge University in 1989, but he was first hit with a restraining order in 2002 after she became alarmed at his behaviour in the wake of the murder of fellow TV presenter Jill Dando in 1999.

Convicting Vines and adding 45 more months to his prison sentence this week, Judge Peter Ross said that it was “something of a scandal” that Vines had been able to make contact with Maitlis despite being behind bars.
