Man threatens to 'hunt down' neighbour
A DISPUTE over rubbish resulted in a man screaming abuse at his neighbour in the early hours of the morning.
Hugh Holme flipped at 4.30am after finding rubbish which contained a letter addressed to his girlfriend's neighbour in her garden at Gilda Crescent in Hengrove.
Holme then banged on Nicholas Majduck's door and screamed at his window telling him to come and clear it up his mess or he would kill him.
Holme, 27, had pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour towards Mr Majduck on December 27 last year.

May Li, prosecuting, said the row stemmed from a neighbourly dispute. After telling Mr Majduck he would kill him he added "When I see you in the morning I will hunt you down," Miss Li added.
In police interview apologised for his behaviour but said he had snapped because Mr Majduck, who lived above them, would often wake their child up being noisy at night and would throw rubbish from his window into the garden.
Although Holme does not live at the address he has regular contact with his child.
Paul Whitcliffe, defending, said his client regretted his actions but was "at the end of his tether."
Holme, of Rochester Road, Durham, was given a three month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 court costs.
