‘Two years later, I was advised to have surgery, where four of my vertebrae would be fused together with pins.
The defendant and complainant are neighbours and I understand there have been problems for around six years between the two of them.
On multiple occasions the defendant, at times under the influence of alcohol, acted abusive to him and guests at his house.'Regularly shouting abuse, telling him to come outside, confronting the complainant and his adult son out in the local area, calling the complainant a w***er, knocking on the wall between the houses, making allegations that the complainant's daughter has been dancing around naked on the bed, this said out in the street which had not been the case.'During one occasion when she had been making comments towards the complainant with his son present the son responded telling her to stop taunting his father.
Paul Kidd, defending, said: 'This is quite a sad case with a long history.
On occasions the complainant has kicked her gate and on one occasion his partner has pushed my client over.
They have been dealt with by informal advice.'In a statement, Mr Shorrock said: 'All this harassment is having an adverse affect on my life. I feel at risk and not safe in my own home.'I've had people come to my house trying to find me.
I am worried about my partner and daughter and just want the defendant to leave us alone.'Kitson - whose husband left her last month - admitted harassment between February and July this year and was also fined £150 plus £85 costs and issued with a 12-month restraining order banning her from contacting Mr Shorrock.
On one occasion, Mr Shorrock's son - believed to be aged 20 - begged Kitson to stop 'taunting' his father to which she responded 'I'll slit your f***ing throat'.
At Manchester Magistrates' Court, Kitson - who admitted harassment and said she had turned to drink because of the feud - wept as she escaped jail.
'She began throwing eggs at the complainants property and threw eggs and yogurt over his car saying "I f***ing hate you, there's nothing you can do".'When the complainant contacted the police she asked where's the ambulance and later said 'you have won, I'm going to take all my medication and kill myself'.
