Bur­rell’s dirty caller planned to bomb shop

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

A MAN made threat­en­ing phone calls to ex-royal but­ler Paul Bur­rell and also rang him while hav­ing a W*NK, a court was told.

Slav Mitev claimed to have kid­napped Bur­rell’s wife Maria and said he was go­ing to bomb the late aide to Princess Diana’s flower shop in Cheshire.

Mr Bur­rell ( above) told Ch­ester Crown Court: “I was sick to my stom­ach. I put the phone down and rang my wife in Amer­ica.”

Mr Bur­rell, 53, was giv­ing ev­i­dence in the trial of Mitev, 50, who is charged with ha­rass­ment and caus­ing a vic­tim to be put in fear of vi­o­lence.

The court heard about other calls made to the flower shop in which the caller said he was mas­tur­bat­ing.

A judge has ruled that Mitev, of Wood Green, London, was not fit to en­ter a plea to the charges due to his men­tal state.

The case con­tin­ues.
