Woman arrested at daughter's birthday party smashed police camera

A Whitehaven woman smashed a police camera after being arrested at her teenage daughter’s birthday party, a court has heard.

Margaret Allison Ennis, 37, of Mirehouse, admitted criminal damage to a police van’s CCTV camera after she had been detained for threatening and abusive behaviour.

Ennis returned to her Newlands Avenue home at around 11.30pm on New Year’s Eve to find the police already there.

Jane Mackrill, prosecuting, said that Ennis had then become involved herself, knocking someone to the ground.

She was arrested and while in the back of the police van kicked a CCTV camera lens causing nearly £160 worth of damage.

Ennis said she had returned home after a night out to find police outside and boys and girls fighting.

She said she had tried to get involved to stop it.

She was told to undertake 60 hours of unpaid work, pay compensation of £159.50, costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £60.
