Our expert says:
Actually, I think that using vulgar language that is frightening, annoying or hurtful to the recipient IS potnetally a crime, something like crimen injuria. If it were not, we could all spend far more time swearing and insulting the people we don't like much. Maybe the old lady is psychiatrically unwell, but even there, there are limits as to what would be tolerable on her part. I think it is entirely reasonable for you to discuss this with the police. If they are any good at their ob, perhaps a visit to her and a word from them, may stop her ; otherwise a restraining order could be granted by a court.
And swearing in front of your children, would be looked on badly by police and courts.
