Fegg Hayes racist Dawn Howarth told to do some work
A WOMAN who avoided prison after racially abusing a takeaway owner has been ordered to do more unpaid work after missing a number of sessions.
Dawn Howarth, aged 48, of Withington Road, Fegg Hayes, appeared at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court yesterday to be given 14 more hours for breaching her original order.
The court heard Howarth was unable to carry out the work because she suffers from obsessive compulsory disorder (OCD), although no medical evidence was presented to the court.
Howarth was sentenced in January after being convicted of racially abusing kebab shop owner Mehmet Celik, in Goldenhill, in October 2010.

Judge Granville Styler said: "I have sympathy for your medical condition but I think it would benefit you to do some work."
