The Derby Telegraph reports on a trial at Derby Crown Court involving a man who is alleged to have called two female neighbours “Isis slags” and “Isis bitches”.

Christopher Blurton was charged with racially aggravated harassment in connection with the alleged offences which happened between June 28, 2015 and August 19, 2015.

The two women are said to have moved into the Manchester Street property in 2014 and the court heard how they initially experienced no problems.

Blurton, who used to be in the armed forces, is alleged to have shouted the abuse whilst in his garden and in his home.

Prosecution barrister Jonathan Dunn said Blurton posted an offensive note through the neighbour’s letter box which referred to Isis.

Blurton is also alleged to have called the two women “Isis bitches” and “Isis slags” and also allegedly said he would “burn the holy Qur’an”.

Derby Crown Court heard after the police were alerted to the trouble, the alleged behaviour stopped for a period.

One of the victims told the court: “(It) will be quiet and then we would hear racist remarks such as ‘hope the dirty P**** die’.”

She also said Blurton told them he would “slice us up”.

Blurton denies the charge. The trial continues.
