London, Sep 6 (IANS) An elderly widow in Britain has been jailed for stalking a hospital chief executive for six months over her husband’s death.

Margaret Harvey, 74, blamed National Health Service boss Julia Bridgewater for the death of her husband Graham in 2004. She bombarded her with a string of late-night calls and even hiring a private detective to track the hospital chief down, Daily Mail reported.

After insisting Bridgewater would “not answer her questions”, Harvey even turned up at the home of the University Hospital, North Staffordshire chief executive.

She remained unaware to the fact that her “deliberate campaign of harassment” was misdirected since Bridgewater was not even appointed chief executive until two years after Harvey’s husband died.

A court heard Harvey could not accept the hospital was not to blame for her husband’s death.
