This week 30 years ago: King’s Cross tenant banned from being racist

A racist King’s Cross tenant was “forbidden” by a court order to harass a caretaker on her estate.
The woman was taken to court by Islington Council, which said people visiting or living in her flat in Hurst House, Weston Rise, were racially abusing the caretaker.
On one occasion, Clerkenwell County Court heard, an object was thrown through his window.
The court granted the injunction, which was thought to be the first of its kind involving a tenant and a council worker.
In other court news, a warehouse manager denied causing “unnecessary suffering” to a cat by throwing it out of a third floor window at his home in Stonefield Street, Barnsbury.
