A council house tenant in Sheffield who shouted abuse and threats at her neighbours has narrowly avoided losing her home.

Jeanette Coburn, of Creswick Street, Lower Walkley, admitted at Sheffield County Court that she had breached her tenancy conditions repeatedly by swearing and shouting abuse at her neighbours.

She was issued with a two-year suspended possession order and warned she will be evicted if she breaches the conditions again.

Coun Harry Harpham, Sheffield Council’s cabinet member for homes and neighbourhoods, said: “We simply will not tolerate this kind of aggressive, violent and abusive behaviour.”
