A woman who had been drinking was arrested twice in two days by Blackpool police for raucous behaviour.

Melanie Lightfoot, 31, of Langley Lane, Sandbach, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

She was given a 12 months’ conditional discharge and ordered to pay £15 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Alison Quanbrough, prosecuting, said police saw Lightfoot being aggressive toward people in the area of Chaos Bar on June 14 and 16. She struggled wildly when police apprehended her.

Michael Woosnam, defending, said Lightfoot had recently been discharged from a psychiatric hospital. She felt she should not have been discharged as she could not cope or manage her aggressive tendencies.
