An English judge told a racist thug she was jailing "you're a bit of a c*nt yourself" after he launched a tirade against her, calling her the 'C' word.

John Hennigan, 50, was being sentenced to 18 months for racially insulting a black woman. 

At Chelmsford Crown Court this week, the judge told him: "Your offence is thoroughly unpleasant and repeated breaches of this order using the most unpleasant of language and causing distress.

"It's said custody would be distressing for you but it seems you never learn.

"This is the ninth time you have breached this order, the same offensive, racist comments and you don't deserve another chance."

He then told Judge Patricia Lynch QC she was a "bit of a c*nt", to which she replied: "You are a bit of a c*** yourself. Being offensive to me doesn't help."

Hennigan then told the judge to "go fuck" herself.

Judge Lynch responded: "You too."

As he was led away, banging on the class partition of the dock, he shouted "seig heil" and sang "Jews gas them all.."
