Woman charged over golliwog row

A woman has been charged with racially aggravated harassment after a neighbour complained about a golliwog displayed in her window.

Jena Mason, 65, will appear before Lowestoft magistrates on Tuesday following the alleged incident in August, Suffolk police confirmed.

According to reports, Mrs Mason, of College Lane, Worlingham, was arrested after her black neighbour Rosemarie O'Donnell complained about the doll being displayed in her window.

"We have had a complaint from a member of the public, we have investigated it and both the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and ourselves have agreed there is enough to prosecute," a police spokeswoman said.
