ASBO FOR 80-YEAR-OLD NEIGHBOUR FROM HEIL; Twisted bigot's reign of terror on streets.

Byline: Euan Stretch

A BIGOTED 80-year-old who has terrorised her neighbours for seven years has been given an Asbo.

Edna Beck, who walks with a Zimmer frame, insulted Muslims, Jews, Germans, Poles and gay people, has made physical threats and run malicious campaigns.

At one point, council officers were dealing with a weekly average of three anti-social problems concerning her.

She was arrested on Tuesday after a loud rant about US president Barack Obama. And yesterday at Brighton Magistrates' Court, Beck, of Hove, Sussex, was issued with an interim anti-social behaviour order banning her from inciting hatred, being drunk and disorderly, and shouting to cause alarm.

Outside court, she said: "I'm not anti-social. I'm a normal woman and everyone can tell you that."
