Woman so loud she’s banned from entire town centre after vile foul mouthed rant
A woman urinated on the floor of a business in front of a police officer after she was caught shoplifting.
Kerry Jessop has been banned from Middlesbrough town centre following a series of incidents.
The 40-year-old subjected council officers, security staff, shop workers and members of the public to a volley of verbal abuse, Teeside Live reported.
Last June, while apparently under the influence of alcohol or drugs, she told a female neighbourhood safety officer “you look a silly **** in that mask”.
The following month she threatened to cough on a security officer at Middlesbrough bus station while displaying a ‘very aggressive and unpleasant demeanour’, and called security staff at Middlesbrough House “****ing useless”.
When she was detained in December for shoplifting, she was taken to the store manager’s office where she dropped her trousers and urinated on the floor in front of a police officer.
Now the 40-year-old has been barred from entering a large area of central Middlesborough – bounded by the A66, Hartington Road and Borough Road – until August, 2022.
The Middlesbrough County Court order bans her from using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour towards any other person, or from being in possession of any open container of alcohol in a public place.
The court heard Jessop’s criminal record included 27 convictions over the last two decades, as well as a three-year anti-social behaviour order.
Numerous attempts to offer support failed to bring about an improvement in her behaviour.
In 2020 her anti-social ways continued across the town centre, often recorded on body-worn cameras by council neighbourhood safety wardens.
Welcoming the injunction, Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston said: “The sort of appalling behaviour that’s led to this action is totally unacceptable, and we’ll use all means at our disposal to stamp it out.
“Hard-working shop staff, not to mention our wardens and members of the public, have a right to be treated with courtesy and respect – not subjected to a torrent of foul-mouthed abuse.
“Efforts have been made to help Kerry Jessop improve her behaviour and turn her life around, but she’s rejected them all.
“That leaves us with no option but to ban her from the town centre to protect decent, law-abiding people.”
