Man jailed at Lincoln Magistrates Court after sending abusive messages about the cutting of Fireman Sam promotional material
A telecoms engineer who sent abusive messages to Lincolnshire's chief fire officer in response to the service axing Fireman Sam from its promotional material, was jailed at Lincoln Magistrates Court earlier today (November 27).
Jeremy Flashman, 56, rang fire officer Les Britzman and swore at him after the officer was interviewed by Piers Morgan on breakfast television.
Although Mr Britzman hung up, he later received an e-mail and a voicemail message in which Flashman was abusive about the fire chief's mother, partner and the officer himself.
