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.

Do decorative lights in town centres make a difference to the way you feel about Christmas?

Certainly. I don't feel the season has started until after the big switch-on

These days I don't think they're worth the expense

Love them - but they shouldn't be switched on until December
