An animal lover who plagued slaughterhouse owners in Bakewell with phone calls after she saw a TV programme about animal cruelty has been sentenced to 60 hours of community work.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard, last month, how Michelle Oates-Orman, 40, of Clapham Road, Bedford, consistently phoned Leonard and Anne Boyd at Underedge Farm, Rowland, Bakewell, in March.

Becky Allsop, prosecuting, said: “Mrs Boyd received numerous phone calls to their farm between 9am and 1pm on March 5 asking to speak to someone about animal cruelty. The phone rang consistently and Mrs Boyd started lifting it up and putting it down.”
