A man has been jailed for hurling racist abuse and threatening staff working at Willesden Magistrates’ Court.
Neville Bourne, 45, from Uxbridge, shouted obscenities at the workers after they told him there was nothing on file matching a court matter he had inquired about.
He was asked to calm down and fled the building in High Road, Willesden, when security was called following the incident in July last year.
A hunt for him was launched and he was tracked down and arrested in September.
Bourne had denied racially aggravated harassment and threatening behaviour but was found guilty at Harrow Crown Court and sentenced to eight months in jail.
