A woman who verbally abused another woman in her neighbourhood has been ordered to pay compensation to her victim.

Elizabeth Shelley, aged 52, of Egerton Road, Dronfield, was arrested in connection with an incident on Tuesday, June 4, and appeared at Chesterfield Magistrates’ Court charged with a public order offence.

She was handed a conditional discharge for 12 months, and ordered to pay £150 costs and £15 compensation to her victim.

“We’re committed to targeting all types of anti-social behaviour.”
