She added: ‘When it’s been nice and we’ve been sat out in the garden he has heard us talking and then he will start talking to people and he has said again “they’re the … Christians they’re living too long” and “when they’re dead I shall (urinate) and dance on their graves”.’

As reported, Miller shot to notoriety in the early 2000s after being caught illegally clamping vehicles across Portsmouth.

In December magistrates convicted Miller in his absence of harassment between June 2009 and January this year, and failing to comply with a community protection notice by not removing junk from the alleyway. He was cleared of criminal damage.

Magistrates were told he was convicted for a separate harassment charge against The Baffins pub landlord Mitch Payne and was facing six to eight weeks’ jail for that offence.

Miller appeared before magistrates on January 3 and will be sentenced on January 31.

He was granted bail.
