Alison Chabloz, who has since been living in London, took part in a broadcast in May and July 2019.

The comments also breached conditions of a previous suspended sentence for similar offences.

At Westminster Magistrates’ Court on March 31, the 56-year-old was found guilty of sending and having cause to send an offensive, indecent, obscene, menacing message under the Communications Act.

Alison Chabloz, from Derbyshire, has been jailed for making right wing and anti-Semitic comments on a radio show.

DC Chris Reed said: “Alison Chabloz, in full knowledge of the conditions that had been imposed for her previous offending, deliberately set out to cause serious offence and concern, in particular to the Jewish community.

“Her disregard for those conditions, and for the impact she knew her words would have, have rightly seen her jailed.

“This case should show everyone, whether offender or victim, that as a force we take this type of offending seriously and will seek to bring those responsible to justice.”
