A 54-year-old woman who used a hammer to damage a neighbour's wooden fence has been jailed.

Anne Egglestone, of Spinney Close, Thorpe St Andrew, committed the offence on August 20 this year.

Norwich Magistrates' Court heard on Monday how she was verbally aggressive towards the victims and attending police officers.

She also made a call to the police contact and control room, in breach of her CBO, which she received in April 2016 for making unnecessary, rude and obstructive calls to staff.

Egglestone pleaded guilty to criminal damage, public order offences and the breach of her Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).
