A WOMAN caused chaos in Blackpool’s accident and emergency unit.

Jessica Wishaw, 20, had been taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital by police after she was stabbed in the arm.

Wishaw, of Central Drive, Blackpool, was drunk, Blackpool magistrates were told, and started shouting and swearing. She upset other patients including a mother and newborn baby.

She was aggressive with police officers and kicked out at one hurting his ankle.

Wishaw admitted obstructing a police officer and being drunk and disorderly.

David Charnley, defending, said: “When she realised what she had done she immediately apologised.”

Wishaw was given a 12-month conditional discharge.
