RESIDENTS on a Winchester street have been attacked for “clapping like seals” because they join with the rest of the country in the weekly Clap for Carers every Thursday at 8pm.

They are upset at being called “idiots”, “gullible sheep” and left feeling “imprisoned in their own homes” by an ex-Parliamentary candidate living in the same road.

Teresa Skelton, also known as Teresa Morse, has been hurling insults and messages from the upstairs window of her Hyde Close home as neighbours take part in the event.
