A couple from Stevenage were found guilty of harassment and conspiracy to destroy or damage property at St Albans Crown Court today.

Neil Ansell, 46, and his wife Louise Ansell, 36, from Stevenage were both found unanimously guilty of the two offences after trial by a jury.

The crimes were committed after Mr Ansell discovered his wife had been having an affair with her personal fitness trainer and carried out acts of revenge against his love rival.

Mr Ansell’s wife Louise, who had told him about her relationship after it was over, assisted and encouraged him with the acts of revenge.

A date for the couple’s sentencing has yet to be set.
