A stalker who harassed and trolled Eastenders star Danniella Westbrook with incessant abusive messages online has been jailed for three years.
Natasha Dawn also targeted a lady named Tracey Patterson who stood up for Danniella on Twitter. The 43-year-old sent between 20 and 80 abusive messages every day for nine months, which just shows the kind of lunatic we’re dealing with here.
Here are some of the awful messages she would send Danniella and Tracey, whose husband is charity worker Barrington “One Eyed Baz” Patterson – a black man. I’m sure you can guess why that’s relevant before reading a few examples of the abuse Natasha would send below…
As you can see, Natasha Dawn’s abuse also included taunts about her victim’s dead mother and threats of violence. When she was blocked by her victims, she would just create new accounts.
Following her arrest, Natasha admitted three charges of stalking in court before being passed a three year sentence. It also emerged that she had sent messages of abuse to a number of other people on social media.
Detective Sergeant Lee Kirk of Nottingshire Police said:
Dawn’s behaviour throughout this period was genuinely shocking and I am pleased she has now been brought to justice.
Our investigations found she had abused a number of people on social media and I hope this sentence provides her victims with some degree of comfort.
Danniella celebrated the ruling on Twitter…

Well, all’s well that ends well. A nasty internet troll who took her abuse to the extreme is behind bars, and her victims finally have peace. Does this make Natasha Dawn an offline troll now?
Serves as a decent reminder to anyone out there who makes a habit out of harassing and abusing others online; it just ain’t worth it. All you’re doing is spreading your own misery and unhappiness onto others, and it will only lead to your own destruction whether you wind up in prison like Natasha or not. Never forget:
