A former nurse warned she’d kill her neighbour in a foul-mouthed rant.

Police rushed to the house of Yvonne Finlayson, 74, after she phoned them to say she was going to kill her neighbour after they fell out over a supply.

The pensioner was pressured to spend an evening in a cell after making the menace about 72-year-old Christine Blower.

Wigan Magistrates Court heard Finlayson, from Atherton, informed a name handler she was “going to kill her, the f****** c***” earlier than she hung up.

The police operator referred to as her again and Finlayson added: “I do not f****** care, I will f****** kill that c*** next door. I will really do that.”

Greater Manchester Police despatched officer round to Finlayson’s house and arrested her. One Justice of the Peace mentioned her evening custody was “punishment in itself”.

Police enquiries revealed the 2 pensioners had been at battle after Miss Blower befriended an area supply driver recognized solely as “Gaz”, studies Manchester Evening News.

Finlayson had accused Miss Blower and Gaz of stealing cash from her.

On the day of the incident Miss Blower posted a Facebook message about Finlayson, saying: “My next neighbour has harmed my dog with a knife please help me she is evil.”

Nick Smart, prosecuting, informed the court docket that the GMP name operator phoned Finlayson again as “normal procedure” earlier than asking for her tackle.

He added: “She gave her tackle and mentioned, ‘I tell you now, I am going to f****** kill her. She is nothing but a f****** c***’. Clearly the police were called as a response to that and the call back. Officers were dispatched to the local area and the lady concerned.

“She was arrested and taken to the local police station. She confirmed she used to be friends with Miss Blower ‘but not now’, but denied making the call.”

Miss Blower died from natural causes after the fall out on August 21 last year. Charges of assault and public order made against Finlayson were dropped following her neighbour’s death. She pleaded guilty to a malicious communication offence and was conditionally discharged for a year.

Defending, Ian Owen told the court his client had never been in trouble with the law before.

He said: “This is a lady who finds herself before the court for the first time in her life at the age of 74, which in itself is a sad fact.”

Mr Owen said the pair had been friends and got on “extremely well” and “came to rely on each other for help.” But their friendship soured after Finlayson accused “Gaz” of taking her purse and handbag.

He added: “Over time challenges were made over the foregoing weeks and the relationship between the two ladies soured, as you can imagine.”

The final straw was when Finlayson saw a delivery to Blower’s home and “felt her nose was being rubbed in it” and mentioned “you are buying on the strength of the money that was taken from me”.

It was then Finlayson referred to as the police. Finlayson, of Atherton, Wigan, was ordered to pay £111 in prices and sufferer surcharge.
