TWO teenagers subjected the daughter of a police community support officer to a tirade of abuse whenever they saw her.

The woman was called a variety of names, including "copper slut," Fenland magistrates were told.

Eighteen-year-old Daniel Robertson, of High Street, Chatteris, and a 17-year-old both admitted harassing their victim between July 31 and November 16 last year.

The victim - who had just had a baby - was so upset by the name calling that she was frightened to leave her home, said prosecutor Scheherazade Haque.

"Whenever they were out in public and saw her, they directed verbal abuse at her," added Miss Haque. "She believes it was because her mother is a PCSO in the Peterborough area."

Mitigating, Frank Squires said: "Both clearly recognise this was unpleasant behaviour and have apologised in person and by letter."

Robertson is due to be sentenced by Huntingdon magistrates on April 21; and his co-defendant will be dealt with at Fenland Youth Court.
