A NURSE was hauled before a crown court for sending a neighbour a greeting card full of glitter.
Kathryn Woodcock, 34, was pursued by police and prosecutors for eight months.

She was charged with two counts of sending an article with intent to cause distress — only for the case to be abandoned, eventually.
Single mum Kathryn said: “It was meant to be a parting joke to a neighbour. I thought I was going to be locked up.”
She had delivered the £5 card — which read ‘F*** off’ with a middle finger popping up — to neighbours who were moving out of the flat below hers in Southampton.
She was glad to see them go as they had complained that her daughter made too much noise.

But the recipient complained of suffering a bad reaction to the glitter.
By the time lab tests showed it was harmless, Kathryn had appeared before JPs and twice in crown court.
The Crown Prosecution Service, who finally dropped the case, said: “We have a duty to keep cases under continuing review.”
