"Couple Of Glasses Of Wine" Put NHS PA Over Drink-Drive Limit

Wimbledon Magistrates Court
An NHS administrator was caught drink-driving after “a couple of glasses of wine” when police spotted her looking at her phone while behind the wheel.

Yvonne Stupple, 58, from West Brompton, a PA for Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trust says she is “mortified” by her arrest and court appearance.

She pleaded guilty to driving her Chevrolet vehicle with excess alcohol in her breath in York Road, Battersea at 10.25pm on May 25.

Her reading was 41 microgrammes - slightly over the 35 limit.

Wimbledon Magistrates Court heard officers pulled Stupple over after seeing her phone in her hand although she says her vehicle was stationary at the time.

As far as the officers were concerned she failed to pull over satisfactorily and appeared confused.

They followed her around a large roundabout and she stopped opposite a petrol station.

When asked if she had been drinking Stupple confessed she had a few glasses of wine.

Her lawyer told the court: “It is a case of misjudgement. She did not feel she was under the influence of alcohol.

“She waited a few hours and thought she was fine to drive.

“She puts her hands up and takes full responsibility.

“She is very embarrassed and is remorseful. She was stationary when she looked at her phone.

“She is mortified she is in this position after a couple of glasses of wine.”

Stupple was disqualified from driving for twelve months and fined £500, with £85 costs and ordered to pay a £50 victim surcharge.

Lord's Lover Accused Of Pigs Blood Vandalism Of Pied a Terre

Outside Court: Lizzie
The ex-Olympic showjumping lover of Tory Lord David Prior broke into their former love-nest and used pigs blood to daub the walls with offensive words and symbols, a court heard.

Lizzie Purbrick, 63, of Northgate Hall Farm, The Street, Warham, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk denies the charge.

She appeared for the first time at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court charged with burgling the house in Cardigan Street, Lambeth, with intent to do unlawful damage on May 9.

Purbrick, a member of Great Britain’s 1980 equestrian team, will return to the same court for trial on July 17.

Her lawyer Mr. Simon Nicholls told the court: “It is said she has gone to her ex-lover’s flat in London with two pints of pigs blood and daubed the walls with words and symbols.

“Lord Prior is the complainant and the address is the location where they would meet.”

Purbrick won the Amanda Dish at 1984’s Badmington Horse Trials and in 1978 competed at the World Championships in Lexington, Kentucky.

Pigs Blood: Lord Prior's House
In 1981 she was a member of the gold medal-winning British team at the European Championships.

Outside court she corrected her lawyer and said “five litres” of pigs blood was used to daub “offensive and explicit” words inside the property.

Lord Prior’s official title is Baron Prior of Brampton and the Charterhouse School and Cambridge-educated peer married Caroline Holmes on St. Valentine’s Day, 1987 and they have a son and daughter.

He was a Conservative MP for North Norfolk between 1997 and 2001 is currently Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in the House of Lords.

The former investment banker, 63, is the chairman of University College Hospital and was the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health in David Cameron’s government.

The defence have requested his presence at the trial for cross-examination.

Boozy Cricket Fan Bit Lord's Security Guard At Test Match

Lord's Cricket Ground
A drunken cricket fan, who had been drinking beer and champagne at a Lord's test match, assaulted two security guards – biting one of them - as he tried to re-enter the ground.

Construction company boss Ross Allen, 39, of Westfield Close, Gravesend had attended the England v Pakistan match with family and friends.

The father-of-two pleaded guilty at Westminster Magistrates Court to assaulting Earl Annakie and Djan Salih and being drunk and disorderly at the St. John's Wood ground on May 25.

The magistrate told him: “This was a most unfortunate episode and there were certain aggravating features.

“You were drunk and this involved security staff.

“It was a lengthy episode and there was a bite and that must have caused a great deal of anguish.”

However, the magistrate added: “We appreciate you have shown remorse and that you have been under stress.”

Allen was ordered to complete 40 hours community service and was fined £100 with £85 costs, plus an £85 victim surcharge.

He must also pay £500 compensation to Djan Salih, the security guard he bit.

Reality Star "Suicidal" After Stun-Gun Cocaine Arrest Damaged His Brand

A finalist of ITV2’s ’Survival Of The Fittest’ felt suicidal at damaging his ‘brand’ after police found an electric stun gun and cocaine during a raid on his bedroom in his mother’s house.

Fitness trainer and model David Pearse Lundy, 26, was woken in bed by police looking for firearms and weapons during the early-morning search.

Lundy, of Aragon Road, Morden pleaded guilty at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court to possessing a prohibited weapon and two small paper wraps of cocaine on December 21, last year.

He was sentenced to six months imprisonment, suspended for twelve months and ordered to perform 120 hours community service.

Lundy was also fined £75 for the cocaine charge and ordered to pay £670 costs.

The raid was before he made the final of the show - dubbed Love Island’s winter alternative - which was shot in South Africa featuring teams of Boys v Girls.

Fortunately the charge was reduced from a more serious one, which carries a minimum of five years imprisonment. 

“A doctor’s report describes the depressive and anxiety issues that this defendant suffers from and the fear engendered in him from damaging the brand he has worked so hard for,” said Mr. Oliver Blunt QC, defending.

“He has had thoughts of suicide, but has been persuaded from that as his mother needs his assistance and support.”   

Prosecutor Mr. Nicholas Dunham told the court: “Police officers executing a search warrant went to David Lundy’s home address.

“The door was opened by his mother, who said he was upstairs asleep in bed.

“Officers went upstairs and woke him up and asked if there were any guns or weapons in the room.

“He said there was a torch with an electric thing on the end in a chest of drawers.

“The officer opened the drawer and found the black torch described by Mr. Lundy.

“They searched the wardrobe and Mr. Lundy directed them to two paper wraps and said: ‘It’s coke. Some stuff for a Christmas night out.’

“He was arrested and made no reply and taken to the police station, where he made no comment in interview.”

The ‘torch’ was tested by expert Nicola Hater, who said: “It was a duel-purpose hand-held shock device, known as a stun gun with a torch attached to it.

“It was covered in black tape and the meta heads were flush with the outer casing. It was powered by an integral chargeable battery.”

The stun gun was tested and was in working order, delivering an electric charge.

Mr. Dunham added: “Discharges are meant to incapacitate by interfering with muscle control, causing spasms, pain, mental confusion and loss of balance.”

Lundy’s QC said imprisonment would prevent him participating in  a ’Survival of the Fittest’ v ‘Eastenders’ charity football match on June 23 to raise funds for the John Hopkins Trust cancer charity.

“You could not have clearly more co-operation from the defendant. It was he that pointed out to the police where this device would be located in a drawer in a chest of drawers and where this minute amount of cocaine would be located.

“In fairness to Mr. Lundy he could not have been more co-operative at the scene with the police officers.

“He is by way of occupation a freelance model and personal trainer.

“By way of notoriety he participated in ITV2’s ‘Survival of the Fittest’, an eight-week engagement and in fact reached the final.”

The court heard Lundy is due to take over management of a government-run Woking fitness centre on July 1, on a salary of £23,500.

Lundy assists his petite mother Tracey Jane Lundy in caring for his sister Emma, 29, who has cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy.

“She has considerable handicaps,” said Mr. Blunt. “His mother needs the assistance of David to care for her severely disabled daughter.

“She simply cannot cope without the assistance of her son.”

Recently Lundy’s anti-anxiety prescription was doubled.

“Despite suffering from depression and anxiety himself he has helped others as an ambassador for that condition.”

A woman suffering cancer of the cervix wrote a reference for Lundy describing him as “sincere, dependable, loyal and honest.”

Lundy was given the stun gun a year and a half earlier while employed as a bouncer at the West End’s Hippodrome nightclub.

“While he was working there he was given the object by a co-employee. 

‘It was found in a chest of drawers. Mr. Lundy had not handled it for over eighteen months and dumped it in a drawer. It was not even charged.”

He is a volunteer with ‘Kingston Street Pastors’. “Mr. Lundy has a great relationship with Kingston Police,” said the QC.

The lawyer also produced a reference commending Lundy for staying with and helping a bleeding young woman suffering a serious head wound outside the Hippodrome.

He has contracts with three Public Relations companies, including Toto and Streamline. as he pursues a celebrity career and fear he may fall foul of their “unacceptable behaviour” clauses and be dumped.

“There is a risk that Mr. Lundy’s pleas could result in termination of his contracts. That he has damaged his reputation,’ added the QC.

“There are a lot of really positive features about this young man, who appears before the court for the first time and is of good character.”

Judge Georgina Kent told Lundy: “It’s dangerous because weapons like these can be used to incapacitate and in the wrong hands be used to inflict serious harm.

“It is sold in some countries as self-defence, but not in this country. 

‘You have no previous convictions. From what I have heard you are a hard-working man of positive character with medical issues of your own and relied on by your family.

“You worked as a doorman. You knew this weapon was prohibited and potentially dangerous.

“As a fitness instructor you do not need me to tell you how dangerous Class A drugs are.”

Marina War: Thameside Resident Smashes CCTV And Confronts Yacht Owner On Doorstep

Stephen & Christine Parsons
A bitter dispute between Thames side residents and a luxury marina saw CCTV cameras smashed and a yacht owner telling a court he ‘fought for his life,’ during a doorstep confrontation.

Residents of million pound homes claim motion-sensor alarms protecting yachts moored at the bottom of their gardens in Hampton  constantly wake them at night.

They have also made multiple planning objections to proposals to develop Hampton Riviera Boatyard and claim yacht owners were cashing-in by running illegal B&B’s from their vessels.

Retired construction boss Stephen Howard Parsons, 65, who lives in £1.2m Thames Cottage, Hampton Court Road, East Molesey was caught on camera smashing the cameras one night.

He pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage to the security equipment owned by marina boss Myck Djurberg, 58, and yacht owner Klaus Beversluis, 50 on January 8.

Parsons was also convicted of threatening behaviour at Mr. Beversluis’s girlfriend’s home in Dorchester Road, Worcester Park the next day and causing criminal damage to the front door.

He received a twelve-month community order and must complete 80 hours community service.

Parsons was also ordered to pay £100 compensation for Mr. Beversluis’s camera and £150 for Natasha Knight’s front door.

The court made an indefinite restraining order prohibiting him contacting the couple and Mr. Djurberg.

Wimbledon Magistrates Court heard he was caught on camera smashing the CCTV with a large wooden bat at 9.45pm, including one protecting the ‘Lucy Aswell’ one of three boats owned by Mr. Beversluis. 

Klaus Beversluis & Natasha Knight
“A baton or stick was used with extreme force five times on Mr. Djurberg’s camera,” said prosecutor Lydia Marshall Bain. “The same person returns and damages the CCTV of a boat moored by the jetty.”

IT Consultant Mr. Beversluis was relaxing on another boat with girlfriend Natasha Knight, 46, who describes herself as an ‘entrepreneur’ when he received a security alert on his phone.

He called the police, but ironically ended up in police cells that night, suspected of assaulting Parsons’s neighbour, former EastEnders actor Will Chitty, as the row escalated.

However, Mr.Beversluis says he was attacked. “I had injuries caused by Will and his wife running after me and pushing me into bushes.”

On January 9 he was at Natasha’s home, along with her sons, aged 12 and 14 years-old, when Parsons turned up, accompanied by his wife Christine.

“He shouted: ‘You’ve made a big f***ing mistake’ and forced his way through the door and I tried to push back. His hands pushed the door and then his leg came through the doorway.

“I almost couldn’t believe it, it was a surreal experience. I knew him from the marina, but to see him shouting at the door was very frightening.

“He was shouting and was very, very aggressive and if he accessed the property there would have been a lot of damage to humans or property. He was rampaging.

“He has assaulted us before and threatened to throw Natasha into the river. He was using all of his force, his leg was blocking the door, I couldn’t close it.

Myck Djurberg
“Natasha’s older son, Owen, was screaming: ‘Mummy, mummy!’ It was a harrowing experience for him, he was very scared.

“Natasha also pushed against the door and we managed to exit him. The door was damaged, bent and would not close properly thereafter.

“I felt very, very shaken, very rattled and fearful that he continued to try and push himself into the house despite a child screaming inside, who he could see in front of him.”

Mr. Beversluis admitted renting out his boats, a sideline shut down by the council after local residents’ objections. “I don’t think that is illegal in this day and age,” he argued.

He said the doorstep confrontation lasted approximately sixty seconds. “When you feel like you are fighting for your life that one minute feels very long indeed.”

Mr. Beversluis suggested the CCTV destruction was in preparation for an assault on him later. “We have photographs of Mr. Parsons walking around the marina at 1.30pm that day taking pictures of where the CCTV was.

“This was so he would know where they were to damage with a baseball bat before the assault me.”

Natasha told the court: “I just heard him screaming, bellowing. I was scared and there have been lots of threats.”

Parsons told the court he wanted to sound a personal alarm in Mr. Beversluis’s face to give him a taste of what the residents had endured, but the front door was slammed on him.

“The previous night the people in that house had shone high-powered laser lights through our windows and ran off. I was going to insist they stop harassing us at our home address.

“I said in a calm, clear voice: ‘You made a big mistake attacking my family.’

“I tried to set the personal alarm off, but couldn’t get it to work properly. The same two people have alarms at the bottom of my garden that have gone off the previous two days.

“They were so loud all three houses there were continually woken up at night.”

Parsons claimed Mr. Beversluis damaged his own door. “It was slammed in my face with great force.

“I consider myself the victim and I did not go there hot tempered or angry. 

“I wanted to sort out a long-standing problem. The people in that house were running an illegal bed and breakfast from the boats.

“The previous night they were not relaxing on their other boat, but were shining lights. He has been intent on provocation and intimidation for months.”

The court heard the local residents have made multiple complaints about the marina to the police, the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames, the Environmental Agency and local MP Vince Cable.

Parsons wife Christine said: “They were shining laser lights into our living-room while we were with friends. 

“They knew where we lived and we wanted them to know we knew where they lived and to ask them to stop intimidating us.”

Magistrate Hilary Parker told Parsons: “You took with you an alarm with the intention that they should appreciate the sound of it at close quarters.

“You visited that house with the intention of causing Mr. Beversluis alarm and distress. We don’t find your version of events credible.”

Former Judo Champ Sentenced For Road Rage Assault

Lionel Hibbert
A former British judo champion has been sentenced for knocking a mini-cab driver to the ground after spitting in his face during a road rage confrontation.

Lionel Hibbert, 53, who won the title in 1992 and now teaches kids got into a confrontation after both drivers competed for the same lane in heavy traffic.

The social housing builder, of Wood Close, Kingsbury, an instructor at Pride Judo Club, Vale Farm Sport Centre, North Wembley, says he’s been the victim of a miscarriage of justice. 

He claims he only spat at mini-cab driver Zabihullah Habib’s windscreen after receiving racial abuse and used just his left arm put him to the floor in self-defence.

Hibbert was convicted of assaulting Mr. Habib in Watford Road, Wembley on March 12 and received a twelve month community order.

He must complete 150 hours community service, pay £100 compensation to the victim, £500 costs and an £85 victim surcharge. 

The incident was captured on video by a passing motorist, which Hibbert says exonerates him, but the court refused to admit it as evidence.

The victim told Willesden Magistrates Court Hibbert cut him up in the middle of busy rush-hour traffic at 5pm.

“He managed to get in front of me when he should not have been in the bus lane to do it and caused the traffic to come to a standstill as he blocked both lanes and I sounded my horn.

Zabihullah Habib
“He put his head out of the window and started swearing at me and got out of the vehicle. He was very angry, very aggressive, swearing at the same time.

“I got out to tell him he had to move, that he was in my way and he spat at me. It landed on the left-hand side of my cheek.

“I returned to my car to make a note of his registration number and asked my cousin to call the police.

“As I was trying to take a note I suddenly received a punch to the back of my head, the right side of my neck.

I fell to the ground and landed on my knees and started to feel pain and my right arm started to bleed.”

The cabbie claimed Hibbert tried to flee in a panic. “I opened his door to stop him and he got out of his car and ran after me, trying to hit me.”

Hibbert told the court he exchanged glances with Mr. Habib as they fought for road space. “He drove straight towards me and hit my wheel arch and just carried on.

“I said to him: ‘Are you f***ing crazy?’ He stood in front of my face and called me a dirty black b******.

“I was shocked and thought he was going to do something and there were a few more racial overtones. It was wrong, but I spat on his windscreen.

“He made a very aggressive walk towards me and made a bit of a lunge and I thought he was going to punch me.

“I pulled him towards me, spun him around and set him on the floor. I never punched him.”

Hibbert told the magistrates: “I represented Great Britain for over fifteen years all over the world competing.

“It was minimum force. I just grabbed him and put him on the floor before he could throw a fist at me.”

Hibbert Puts Habib On The Ground
An eye witness came forward to say Hibbert was aggressive and angry and at one point had Mr. Habib in a headlock and the cabbie’s cousin backed-up his account.

Hibbert spent over fourteen hours in police custody afterwards. “They just handcuffed me and put me straight in the van.

“I don’t see why as a big black geezer I’m pointed out as the aggressor.”

Afterwards he said: “Those twenty-two seconds of video contradicts what they say. I just used one arm to put him on the floor, I didn’t put him in a headlock.”

He plans to appeal the conviction. “Because I’m a big black man they threw the book at me to see what sticks. 

“I’m fortunate that I’m not in prison. As a martial arts instructor I don’t want a conviction for assault.

“It wasn’t even a judo move. I just span him around because I thought the two of them were going to attack me.

Six foot, seventeen stone Hibbert added: “It’s disgusting because three people can say what they like against a big black man and the only person to tell the truth all the way through is myself.”

Mum-Of-Three Cleared Of Sending Insulting Texts To 'Love Rival'

A woman has been cleared of sending insulting phone texts to another woman while allegedly lying in bed with the man they both have children with.

Angela Hersey, 33, of Scholey House, Ingrave Street, Battersea had always denied sending the texts from Kevin McMahon's mobile phone, telling the court: “I'm not a scorned woman.”

The mother-of-three was found not guilty at Wimbledon Magistrates Court of sending offensive, indecent, obscene or menacing messages to Freshta Watkin just after midnight on March 1.

However, she was served with an indefinite restraining order prohibiting contact with the other woman.

Prosecutor Mr. James Tucker told the court: “The complainant was in a relationship with Mr. McMahon and the defendant has children by him, as does Ms Watkin, who has one child.

“I don't want to be crude, but it is a love triangle situation.”

At 12.30am Ms Watkin began receiving 29 messages from Mr. McMahon's mobile, the court was told.

“They were abusive, calling her a slag for being with her partner and saying she knows where she lives and should be scared and referring to her child as disabled,” said the prosecutor.

“Ms Watkin suspected the defendant used Mr. McMahon's phone to send the messages.”

Hersey was reported to the police and told them she had a ten-year “on-off” relationship with Mr. McMahon and split-up with him for good when she discovered he had made Ms Watkin pregnant.

“I now know why he never let me touch his phone. He was living a double-life with Freshta,” she told the officers.

The court heard the texts began with: 'This is Angie' and continued with insults including: 'You still f***ing my man you slag?' 'Got your address now bitch.' 'When I see you fat c***.' 'He's asleep at the mo.' 'You sick, sick bitch.'

'Wow. You really are a desperate slapper.' 'You are a vile bitch.' 'Your son is f***ing butters.' 'You will never be a family. You are a secret, a dirty f***ing secret.' 'Be scared Freshta.' 'F***ing moron.'

Ms Watkin told the court she knew the texts came from Hersey. “If she could kill me, she'd probably kill me. She's a bully.

“I'm really anxious now. She wants to destroy me.”

When cross-examined she insisted: “I am 100% sure they came from her. I've received the exact same thing in the past.”

Hersey told the court: “That wasn't me on the other end of the phone. I didn't even know Kevin was with Freshta.

“I don't know a lot about what he gets up to.”

Hersey suggested the most likely person to have sent the messages was Kevin, but the prosecutor countered: “He was the one that reported it to the police in the first place.

“In his statement he says he was asleep and was then woken up by this defendant shouting he had sent the messages.”

Ex Behind Bars For Harassing Former Partner

Wimbledon Magistrates Court
An ex-boyfriend was caught on CCTV speeding towards his one-time partner in a Lidl supermarket car park to abuse her during a harassment campaign after their split.

Daniel Mills, 37, of Sutherland Avenue, Sunbury-on-Thames had also bombarded mother-of-four Stacey Young with texts and phone calls during the two-week period.

He appeared in custody at Wimbledon Magistrates Court, where he was convicted of harassing Ms Young, of Mount Road, Mitcham between November 28 and December 11, last year.

Mills was remanded in custody to appear at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court for sentencing.

The couple were together five years, he told the trial, claiming he left her on November 4, last year.

“I'd had enough of the way things were in the house, the childrens' behaviour,” he said, denying he sent texts and made calls. “I didn't have a mobile phone.”

CCTV captured him driving aggressively towards Ms Young on December 8.

She told the court he shouted through his open driver's-side window: “You fat slag. No one's going to want you.”

Mills claimed he did not shout abuse, but wanted to give his opinion on why she snubbed the funeral of one of his relatives.

“I just thought it was so disrespectful not to attend the funeral. She did not even send any flowers.

“I did not go there to threaten her. I just saw her and expressed my opinion.”

The magistrates dismissed Mills' explanation and their chairperson announced: “We don't believe the version of events put forward by Mr. Mills.

“He is able to use mobile phones to make calls and send texts, which contain numerous threats and he did verbally abuse her in the car park.”

The court heard Mills has already been convicted of other counts relating to Ms Young, including witness intimidation.

He had warned her: “You won't win the case. I don't care if I go to prison, I aint gonna stop.

“You won't be able to live in Mitcham anymore. You could have dropped all this bollocks.

“Watch what happens when I get you, you dog, you c***.”

Court Short: Bus Perv Id'd By Ugly-Patterned Garment

Convicted: Abdi Ikken
A bus sex pest, who groped two disgusted young women, was identified and arrested via the garish shorts he was wearing on CCTV.

Algerian Abdi Wahab Ikken, 41, of Sycamore Road, Dartford, even used a stolen Oyster card to make the journeys in south-east London.

He was found guilty of sexually assaulting a 17 year-old on a number 96 bus in Woolwich on August 28, last year and a second young woman on number 53 on September 25.

He was also convicted at Croydon Magistrates Court of stealing an Oyster card with £55 credit between July 1 and July 31, last year.

Ikken was sentenced to a two-year Community Order, which includes ten days of sex offenders rehabilitation.

He must also sign the Sex Offenders Register for five years and was ordered to pay an £85 victim surcharge.

When police from the Roads and Transport Policing Command raided his home they seized the distinctive shorts Ikken was wearing during the first assault and the Oyster card he used to tap-in both times.

He boarded the 96 bus outside Dartford Magistrates Court at 6.30pm and the teenager, who had been shopping in Bluewater, told the trial: “He was squished up against me and his leg was touching mine.

“I could feel the hairs of his leg on me. It just carried on until his leg stopped and he then used his hands,” added the teenager, who was wearing a summer dress.

“He put his elbow on my hip and pushed down really hard. It hurt, I felt he was trying to hurt me.”

The tearful teenager, who Ikea sat next to despite other seats being available added: “It then started with his fingers feeling my leg at the side of my thigh on my skin. I wasn’t wearing any tights.

“I was in disbelief at first. As I looked down he moved his hand around my thigh.

“I said: ‘You’re disgusting. Why are you trying to touch me on the bus?’

“I was scared. I was unaware of his intention and what he was going to do and if he was going to follow me.”

Caught On Bus: Perv Ikken
A second woman, in her twenties, was travelling towards Whitehall at 1.30pm when Ikken deliberately plonked himself next to her despite others seats being available.

“He immediately spread his legs so his right leg was touching my left leg. It felt uncomfortable.

“I felt it next to my thigh and the rest of my leg. He apologised, but then spread his legs again and I asked him to move.

“He spread his legs a third time and I felt his ankle move against mine very slowly and i felt it was deliberate rubbing against my skin.

“It went on for a while and I was feeling quite irate and said: ‘Can you keep your legs to yourself?’

“He said he did not want to because I was so beautiful and I told him: ’That’s really creepy, get away from me’

“He was grinning in what I’d say was a lecherous way.

“This was a person who knew how to sexually assault someone without it being shown on camera and it made me think he’d probably done it before.

“He spoke like he was very pleased with what he had done. I’ve been sexually assaulted before and this brought it back to me.”

When questioned by police Southwark Council cleaner Ikken, who needed an Arabic interpreter throughout the trial simply said: “It wasn’t me,” and refused to answer any questions.

Her Nibbs: Failed UKIP Candidate Sentenced For Hitting Landlady With Scissors

A failed UKIP candidate, convicted of striking her landlady with a large pair of scissors during a microwave row, has been ordered to complete 200 hours of community service work.

Trainee teacher Juliette Nibbs, 41, who stood in the Kensal Green ward during Brent's 2015 council election, only polled 2.18% of the vote.

She was convicted at Willesden Magistrates Court of assaulting Imtiaz Bibi at an address in Crest Road, Cricklewood on April 11.

The magistrates ruled the offence was not racially-aggravated even though Mrs Bibi told them Nibbs shouted: “You are a Paki. You go back to your f***ing country, you f***ing bitch.”

Nibbs must also comply with a twelve-month Community Order, pay £100 compensation to the victim, £300 costs and an £85 victim surcharge.

She was ordered to pay the money at the rate of £40 per month.

The family had rented out a room to Nibbs, who has since moved out to Knowles House, Longstone Avenue, Harlesden, to help them with the rent to the owner of the property.

Assaulted: Imtiaz Bibi 
Mrs Bibi told the court an argument began over the defendant's use of a microwave oven.

“I told her I thought it was dangerous that she left the microwave running and it was something that happened previously.”

“She said: 'You are lying. It's not on,' and she made faces at me.

“She turned to her room and returned with a pair of scissors and her gestures were very strange and she made faces.

“As she was swearing at me she was waving her scissors at me. They were eight to ten inches long, the type you'd normally see being used by a tailor.

“They were heavy scissors, due to the bruises I got.

“She was at the top of the stairs and I was two steps down and the scissor blades hit my right hand by the wrist as I moved my hands in self-defence.

“It was quite painful and the x-ray showed tissues had been damaged in my thumb.

“The impact was quite deep, with bruising and swelling.”

Nibbs told the court she had no access to the kitchen facilities even though she had rented a room at the house for four years.
