A woman has been handed a curfew after she damaged a police van.

Linda Liddell, 49, of Seven Acres in Parton, pleaded guilty to the offence when she appeared at the magistrates court in Workington on Monday.

She also admitted using threatening behaviour.

The charges relate to an incident in Parton on May 31.

The court heard that Liddell caused £32.50 worth of damage to the police vehicle without lawful excuse.

She must now abide by a 30 day curfew and must be at her address between 8pm and 6am.

Liddell was ordered to pay compensation for the damage as well as paying £95 surcharge to fund victims services and £85 costs.
