Ex-accountant who waged bizarre YouTube hate campaign against her neighbours amid feuds over littering, Brexit and pet turkeys at the home she called ‘Cluckingham Palace’ is convicted of harassment
- Noelle Obcarskas, 64, posted series of bizarre films online of her explosive rows
A retired accountant was facing jail today over a YouTube hate campaign against her neighbours sparked by parking, littering, Brexit – and her own pet turkeys.
Noelle Obcarskas, 64, posted a series of bizarre films online of her having explosive rows.
Some were over her three birds which she kept in the flamboyant front garden of her townhouse which she had named Cluckingham Palace.
Neighbours called in police after complaints about the smell and loud gobbling noises made by the turkeys – one of whom is called Tom.
They also claimed Obcarskas hurled abuse at them in the cul-de sac in Pulford, Cheshire – population 580 – and near where the Duke of Westminster has his family seat.
In one video Obcarskas called company director John McKimmie, 40, a ‘little fat bully with a skivvy wife’ as he remonstrated with her for deliberately blocking his driveway with large pieces of foam.

She also posted a message on a Facebook community page about the father of two saying: ‘Words cannot and are inadequate to describe this display of total t***. No wonder his kids are tongue tied and speechless in his presence when he repeatedly tells them to say something.’
In her campaign vegan Obcarskas targeted 73-year old Gareth Lloyd who complained about the smell of the turkeys. She called him and Mr McKimmie ‘t***s’, ‘d***heads’, and ‘c***s’ and added: ‘They have left their irrelevant a*** wiping skivvy fishwives out of having anything to say being mere females.. In their ego little d*** minds, they are not even ladies.’
In another of her videos Obcarskas filmed herself goading Mr Lloyd outside his home which she posted on YouTube. During the verbal exchange a clearly frustrated Mr Lloyd who was filming Obcarskas on his iPad to get evidence for police was heard telling her: ‘You are one obnoxious evil woman’ and adding: ‘You’re top of the class when it comes to stupid. If you’re on these videos, it would be X-rated……because of your looks.’
In the same film, Obcarskas who has also has two ‘vegan dogs’ and a ‘vegan cat’ panned her camera to a third neighbouring property as a woman screamed: ‘You a 100% hypocrite!’ at her from her bedroom window. In a different video she filmed herself having a slanging match with the same neighbour over the parking of her Renault people carrier outside their adjoining homes.

University educated Obcarskas – whose partner currently lives in Germany – claimed she was being targeted due to her Lithuanian heritage and in social media posts called her neighbours ‘lying Brexiteers with possible pre senile dementia.’ She also slurred them on a Facebook group she created called: ‘Pulford Chester England Near Wales Cymru pronounced Kumree’.
At Chester magistrates court she was found guilty of harassment between March and May last year after a trial which she failed to attend.
She had earlier sent the court 20 pages of emails and claiming to have Covid but JPs proceeded in her absence due to the only evidence of her having the illness was a selfie of her with a scarf over her face and a picture of a positive test and an image of some Boots medicines.
A warrant was issued for her arrest and she now faces up to 12 weeks in jail under sentencing guidelines. Last year she was fined £180 for threatening behaviour following a similar incident in 2021.
Obcraskas who has lived in the close for 30 years had initially got on well with her neighbours but relations deteriorated due to her abusive behaviour. She also irritated the street by acquiring three ‘rescue’ turkeys which she kept at her terraced property.

Mr McKimmie, who works for a US-based firm engaged in hydrocarbon exploration moved into the cul-de-sac ten years ago and told the court: ‘We have different views on the world and life in general but we used to have meaningful conversations and that started to break down slowly.
‘In 2021, she started to get a bit erratic, swearing in the street and it started to distress the family.
‘We assisted Cheshire Police in gathering evidence and the relationship has certainly broken down a lot since then and I feel a bit more targeted. In April of last year, one day I was taking the kids to school and when I returned there was two lots of foam, quite a fair size, blocking the driveway so I moved them to the side and then went into the house and looked out the window.
‘I saw Noelle taking the foam and she blocked the driveway again and I went outside and passed it back to her. I asked her if she minded not littering but as soon as I approached her, she had the camera started and targeted abuse. She called my wife a ‘skivvy’, that sort of thing.
‘It made me a little bit upset at the time, getting abused in the street. On one occasion she was yelling, “I wish you were dead” from her property.

‘Normal tasks like making breakfast for the kids, taking them to school is all part of a wholesome family life, but what she does undoes it all. I should not be dealing with abuse and people blocking the driveway. It does affect your quality of life. It was not very pleasant at all. ‘
Mr McKimmie was shown screenshots of messages Obcarskas had posted to Facebook – one saying: ‘Little d***s like this need to bully to compensate for their short fat stature.’
When asked who he thought Obcarskas was referring to, he replied: ‘I guess that’s myself’ and added. ‘One of the neighbours messaged me to say “You may want to check Facebook. Some comments were made about you”. I felt a little defamed in the public eye. Those were uploaded to a village notice board for all to see.
‘It did raise some questions. I am quite well known in the community, helping out with fairs in the park.’
Mr Lloyd, himself an accountant who has lived in the close for more than 20 years told the hearing the pair fell out five years ago and said: ‘The relationship at one time with Noelle was good. In fact she has been in our house and has been in our garden.
‘But I am aware of the insults that she has put on social media, and the way I have heard her speaking to John, and things that she has said about John and his wife and the children.
‘John and I are neighbours and we get along well.’ When asked how the Facebook messages made him feel, he said: ‘Angry.’
Emily Land, counsel for the prosecution, said: ‘The parties concerned do not generally get along and there have been issues in the past. It appears to Mr McKimmie that the defendant is fixated with him.
‘The defendant admitted in an interview that this was her YouTube channel and Facebook page the comments that she made but suggested her actions were justified because of provocation from her neighbours. She did not consider that she had caused any harassment, alarm or distress.’
In convicting Obcarskas JP Mark Turner said: ‘We accept that evidence of both Mr John McKimmie and Mr Gareth Lloyd who were both credible in their evidence. We find that Miss Obcarskas did cause harassment, alarm and distress by posting defamatory comments on various platforms.’
After the case Mr McKimmie who works for a US firm engaged in hydrocarbon exploration said: ‘I am happy with the result and that justice is being served – it is good for the family and good for me. I am just hoping that’s the end of the matter. I hope there is no re-occurence of the harassment. I hope that Noelle gets what she needs out of it, the correct help.’
When questioned later at home Obcarskas said: ‘It’s all about toadyism and Brexit and a couple of people who are very unpleasant. I wish I had gone to the court with Covid because at least I would have had my chance to have my say. I no longer trust anybody. I had never had any issues with any neighbours until Brexit and that’s when two little people who are very puffed up, wanted a lot of attention.’
