Shelagh Fogarty began her LBC career as a guest presenter in 2014, and her balanced and calm presenting style soon earned her a permanent role. Heartbreakingly, it was this calm approach which led to the most harrowing ordeal of Shelagh's life, when a man stalked her for nearly 2 years.\nIn 2017, Shelagh began to notice the same face appearing in crowds, on the tube, outside her work. She dismissed it at first, but then the appearances became more and more frequent and noticeable - he was there when she met friends, when she travelled across London, at her local train station, and even when he followed her home.??The Followers is a 5-part LBC podcast series where Shelagh talks about the disturbing stages she went through during her stalking: dismissing it, fearing it, and feeling powerless as she was forced to live a limited life. The podcast also included conversations with experts and victims, looking at how societal views, misogyny and popular media tropes may be enabling stalkers to commit crimes without intervention.?\nShelagh wanted to tell her story and to speak with various experts to understand more about obsessive and controlling behaviour, to deal with what happened to her on a personal level and to help others identify the behaviour that can lead to stalking.\nAll 5 episodes will be available from July 4th exclusively on Global Player. Download it now from the App store or go to\nIf you think you or someone you know is being stalked, please call the police or the National stalking helpline on 0808 802 0300 Read more >>

Emmabarnett BBCOne I have much sympathy for Nazanin, it’s just a shame that she has chosen to turn her experience into a left-wing propaganda exercise Emmabarnett BBCOne Shocking story and unbelievable what her native country did to her,its totally unislamic and inhumane,hope NZR solicitor fighting case through the highest authority locally,nationally, internationally, proofing her innocent completely,she should b compensated 400k pounds.🙏🌹😍👍

Emmabarnett BBCOne It really struck a chord with me when she said that she questions whether she deserved the love that Richard showed & everything that he did. Trauma does cruel things to us long after the abuse has finished. Of course you deserve love, Nazanin. 💜 I hope you can believe that. Emmabarnett BBCOne I’ve always been so impressed by Richard’s calmness & quiet control … right from the start of their ordeal, when others might have been ranting emotionally, quite justifiably, he refused to depart from his own personal principles, no matter how bad things got. A wonderful man ❤️

Emmabarnett BBCOne So, you shouldn't have signed your confession then! Stop complaining, you have your freedom and now you're biting the hand that helped you get released. Stop complaining!!! Emmabarnett BBCOne Should of kept her in Iran!! Total waste of tax payers money!! Emmabarnett BBCOne This was outstanding

Emmabarnett BBCOne X Emmabarnett BBCOne What an inspirational woman. Resolute, such strength to talk about her shocking experience, with incredible insights on human emotions and behaviour. Notices she still counts the passage of time in days….61 days since her release. Emmabarnett BBCOne There are some vile tweets on other posts about Nazain. This was a very emotional watch. Interesting perspective about mothers in prison. What a strong woman.

FreeNazanin Emmabarnett BBCOne It's so moving! ♥️ Emmabarnett BBCOne This is exceptional. What an extraordinary, strong minded, incredibly impressive person - & sympathetic, sensitive interviewing. Plus, in early stages, flashes of absolutely righteous fury. This should do for that charlatan of a PM even if nothing else does. Actionable.

Palm oil firms depriving tribes of millions of dollarsCompanies supplying major manufacturers fail to meet promises to share land, joint BBC investigation finds. They shouldn’t be giving them any money whatsoever as they are clear cutting the rainforest at a precedented rate and it needs to stop. Find an alternative. Start growing them in Florida or California. Stop giving money to disgusting greedy men. Never buy anything made with or containing small amounts of Palm Oil in it. Fight corruption & damage to the planet. Like the oil companies in the UK doing the same here.
