West Cumbrian woman abused hospital staff on Christmas Day

A drunk Workington woman shouted abuse at hospital staff in the early hours of Christmas Day.

Amanda Jane Mitchell, 42, of Cranbourne Street, appeared at West Cumbria Magistrates Court and admitted to causing a nuisance to NHS staff at the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven.

Jane Mackrill, prosecuting, told the court that police officers attended the hospital at 12.40am after staff reported that Mitchell was being abusive.

Officers found her in the waiting room, slurring her words and struggling to stand up.

Tim Frost, mitigating, said: “She has had a long term history of problems with alcohol. She is trying her very, very best and hopefully she will think twice about her behaviour in the future.”

Mitchell was fined £75 and told to pay £85 costs and a £20 surcharge.

Should the number of calories in alcoholic drinks be put on labels?

No - it is another example of the nanny state

Yes. You have calories on other food & drink labels, so why not?

Yes. But I doubt it will make much difference to the drinker
