A DRUNKEN woman who took off her top, exposing her breasts to police officers when they were dealing with her at the roadside, told them she had knives concealed in an intimate area.

At Truro’s magistrates’ court Susan Frankham, aged 50, of Millpool, Goldsithney, pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour on November 30 at Rosudgeon.

Alison May, for the CPS, said officers had had reports that she had been drunk at an angling shop at New Town at 11am and found her drinking from a can on the grass verge at Rosudgeon.

She was waving her arms at passing traffic and clearly intoxicated. She was shouting and screaming violent abuse at the officers.

Deborah Von Kohler, her solicitor, said she was someone with problems and regretted her behaviour.

She was fined £100 and £70 costs and surcharge.
