Anne Egglestone, of Spinney Close, Thorpe St Andrew, appeared at Norwich Magistrates yesterday to enter a plea of not guilty to three charges.

She is accused of sending a racially aggravated message to Norwich charity Leeway, harassment by breaching a restraining order and breach of a criminal behaviour order.

She is accused of breaking a restraining order by moving palm trees to intrude on her neighbours garden. But the 55-year-old claimed she only moved them back to their original position.

On the same charge she is said to have been loud and abusive, breaking a restraining order imposed by the magistrates on December 5, 2018.
