Woman threw cat poo at home of neighbours
Speech ban for three years
A WOMAN who threw cat poo at her neighbours’ homes has been banned from speaking to them for three years.
Annah Daniels caused “complete misery” with her campaign of harassment against neighbours in the picturesque Hall Gardens, in Hemington, near Castle Donington.
Daniels also threw stones at their homes and cars and deliberately made holes in their fences.
Court documents seen by our sister paper the Leicester Mercury show that on at least one occasion, Daniels spoke in an abusive and rude manner to her neighbours.
During a hearing at Leicester County Court, she was given a three-year injunction after being described as a “neighbour from hell”.
Daniels, who is understood to be in her 50s, cannot communicate with any of her six neighbours or engage in, or threaten to engage in, any anti-social behaviour.
She is also forbidden from using abusive language or engaging in insulting or threatening behaviour towards her neighbours for the next three years.
During this time, she also is banned from making holes or otherwise damaging the boundary fencing between nearby houses. She is barred from throwing any item towards a property on the estate.
These orders will remain in force until August 2021.
The court papers state that complaints about Daniels’ anti-social behaviour began in 2015.
They reveal she had been a given a series of warnings by police before attending court in April, when she was given a list of orders obliging her to amend her behaviour.
However, she breached those orders in May and June, triggering another court hearing to consider eight allegations.
Court documents state Daniels threw stones at a neighbour’s conservatory roof and other property, as well as cars.
While Daniels denied throwing cat faeces, the judge at the court ruled it had occurred.
Her Honour Judge George said: “All of the allegations about Ms Daniels throwing stones and cat faeces at the car are made out on the balance of probabilities.
“I am satisfied that all the allegations are proved and I find that Ms Daniels has engaged in anti-social behaviour.”
One victim, who did not wish to be named, said: “These incidents have had a massive impact on us.
“It was a truly intimidating experience and caused complete misery. She has been a neighbour from hell.
“We hope the injunction means things will improve, but only time will tell.”
