A WOMAN has been given an 18-week jail term for a campaign of abuse against her gay neighbours.

Sarah Youel got into a violent struggle with prison officers as the sentence was announced at Barnsley Magistrates' Court.

The raging 27-year-old, who was on remand for making a comment to one of the women next door while on bail, knocked a female prison officer to the floor.

Youel, of Strafford Walk, Dodworth, was also banned from contacting victims Lois Pearson and Joanne Brown for five years.

District Judge John Foster said: "This harassment is particularly unpleasant because it emanated from your discriminatory attitude towards your neighbours because of their sexuality."
