Stockport woman on how neighbours made her life a misery

Mo, who is of Iranian descent, says Carol would accost her whenever she left the house (pictured top right). She describes how a 15-year campaign of abuse and harassment, which has left her on antidepressants, contributed to the end of her marriage, and made her and her children afraid to leave the house. One of the main disputes between Mo and the Dickinsons has been their refusal to allow anyone access to the gas and electricity meters for Mo's house, which are on their 8 ft driveway (bottom right).

John Elvedge QC, prosecuting, told the court how during one attack she was high on cocaine while men took turns to have sex with her under a Kurdish flag.

North Korea calls Trump senile and 'bereft of reason'

The US President yesterday warned North Korea it faces 'fire and fury' over its nuclear program sparking claims from Pyongyang that it will create an 'enveloping fire' around Guam. This morning, the secretive state dismissed Trump's threat as a 'load of nonsense' and insisted 'only absolute force' can work on someone as 'bereft of reason'. The remarks come after tens of thousands of North Koreans gathered for a rally in a show of defiance in Pyongyang and as officials insisted the country will be ready to strike Guam by mid-August. One of Kim Jong-un's top officials this morning became the latest critic of Trump's working vacation, accusing him of acting senile while 'on the golf links.'

The President was on the golf course at Bedminster, his golfing companion revealed in an Instagram post - at the same time as Defense Secretary James Mattis bluntly told North Korea it was on the brink.

The rhetoric is biblical: North Korea 'will be met with fire, fury and frankly power like the world has never seen'. Donald Trump sought to win headlines - and succeeded.

Mark Almond outlines military options against North Korea

The war of threats between President Trump and the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-Un, is setting global nerves on edge. We're used to blood curdling propaganda from Pyongyang, but an American president using the same kind of language - 'fire and fury' - is a new departure. The threat of nuclear war in East Asia is suddenly alarmingly close. But before this hysterical rhetoric reaches a climax, Western leaders must consider what history and strategic analysis teaches us about how to avoid calamity - or how best to contain it.


Kim Jong Un's threats against Guam, made just hours after Donald Trump promised 'fire and fury' should he threaten the US again, have raised fears that a military clash could be imminent.
