Chorley couple banned from area after racially abusing a neighbour
10:03am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
A COUPLE who racially abused a neighbour, played loud music and had noisy arguments in the street have been banned from the area for two years.
Susan Coakley, of Northgate Drive, and her partner Michael Wright have been handed injunctions, which will mean a prison sentence if breached.
The news comes just two months after Coakley was issued with a suspended sentence for racially-motivated assault in which she beat her victim and used threatening behaviour.
The couple were repeatedly warned that they would face legal action should their behaviour continue but they remained a nuisance.
The neighbour reported the problems to Chorley Community Housing who then took legal action to have the couple removed.
Tenancy enforcement officer Anna Schickhoff-Brown said: “This is a really good result.”
