A WOMAN has admitted racially abusing her boss at a city shop.

Karen McLean, 48, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court where she admitted a charge of acting in a racially aggravated manner.

McLean shouted and swore at Padmini Sanjay and made racial remarks to her.

The offence took place at Brunswick Stores on the Beach Boulevard on December 16 last year.

She also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner at her home address by shouting and swearing and acting in an aggressive manner on January 3 this year.

The court heard that during the incident McLean made a racial remark to Mrs Sanjay.

Defence agent Neil McRobert said his client had “taken exception” to Mrs Sanjay asking for information about the till and wanting to check it. However, Mr McRobert said she acknowledged her behaviour was “unacceptable”.

Sheriff Kenneth Stewart fined McLean, whose address was given in court as 44 Moir Drive, Aberdeen, a total of £300.
