Valentine’s cards which ‘romanticise’ stalking questioned by Police Chief

Katy Bourne has asked online sellers to reconsider selling Valentine’s Cards which romanticise stalking.

The Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner took to twitter to urge online retailers Thortful and Etsy not to use stalking as a joke out of respect for the thousands of victims living in fear of the crime.

Thortful responded and removed the card from their catalogue. The PCC thanked them for ‘acting swiftly in the manner of a responsible business’.
