Nov 27, 2007 Quickie Link: Couple Suffered Tirade of Anti-Gay Abuse
By vanrozenheim

(UK) - A Lesbian couple were subjected to such an intimidating tirade of homophobic abuse that they dreaded stepping outside their front door, a court heard. Fireworks were hurled at Carol Cashmore and Nina Meffen's house and into their garden and youths regularly gathered outside to shout anti-Gay insults. The catalogue of abuse took place last year, starting with a vicious attack in July in which a 20-year-old man and two teenage girls armed themselves with wooden chair legs and rained blows on the two women until they were barely conscious. Miss Cashmore, 42, told the court the two girls had hung around outside the couple's garden fence and shouted homophobic abuse. On two occasions, fireworks were thrown into their garden, one of which struck a bedroom window.
