Case 89

Ella Tundra

*** Content Warning: stalking ***

In September 2012, former Countdown champion Richard Britton walked into a pub and was served by a 21-year-old bartender, whom he nicknamed “Ella Tundra”. From that moment on, Britton developed a fixation with Ella that filled the typically outgoing and confident young woman with paranoia and anxiety. 

As Britton’s obsession spiralled out of control, Ella went out of her way to keep her distance, going as far as relocating to Scotland. But when another young woman is attacked for writing a negative review of Britton’s book, Ella’s worst fears quickly escalate.
