A WOMAN has appeared in court following an alcohol fuelled row in a Herefordshire town.

Fleur Alice Hirschmann, of South Street, Leominster, admitted using threatening and abusive behaviour when she appeared before Hereford Magistrates Court on July 29.

The court heard police were called to reports of a disturbance in the Burgess Street area, Leominster in the early hours of March 8.

Prosecutor Jo Tait said officers found two groups of people shouting abuse at each other, with Hirschmann shouting "shut up corona" at the other group.

Police hailed a taxi to take the other group away, but 22-year-old Hirschmann kept shouting and swearing at officers, despite being warned to stop.

Hirschmann, who works as a lifeguard at Leominster's swimming pool, was later spoken to by police and admitted that she had "given some mouth" to the attending officers.

Speaking in her own defence, Hirschmann said she could not remember much of that day as she had been drinking.

"I am going through mental health stuff and I am trying to sort my drinking out, but there was no specific reason for drinking that much," Hirschmann said.

Chair of the bench Susan Kitchener said they were not too impressed with people who abuse the emergency services and told Hirschmann it was a shame she had not said sorry.

Hirschmann was handed a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £135 in costs and a £22 victim surcharge.
