A woman has been sentenced after she told a black person a variation of the words ‘f****** n*****, go back to your own country’ at a Weston pub last summer.
Tanya Cullen, aged 33 of Marconi Close in Weston, uttered the words while thrusting a traffic cone into the face of Patience Cranwell.
The experience left the victim feeling ‘threatened and undervalued’ and ‘judged’ because of her colour.
Cullen was found guilty of making a racially aggravated comment with intent to cause intentional harm or distress for her hate crime committed at The Dragon Inn, in Weston’s Meadow Street, on June 2.
She received a 12-month community order.

Cullen is under curfew between 7pm-7am for six weeks, and she has been sentenced to complete 15 days of rehabilitation activities.
