She was fined £750 with £85 costs and ordered to pay £75 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Prosecutor Pam Smith said police were asked to go to Queens Promenade, where a woman had been sick and passed out.

Breyer, who was looking after two children under 12 months old at the time, was slurring her words and shouting when a police officer arrived.

She kept trying to get past the officer and struggled with her when she was being arrested.

When interviewed, Breyer said she was an alcoholic and needed help.

Martin Hillson, defending, said his client, who had been drinking vodka, was embarrassed and remorseful.
