A case in which a 38-year-old Grantham woman stands accused of shoplifting three joints of lamb and one joint of beef valued at £80 has been adjourned to ensure the court summons is sent to the correct address.

Nicola Dowell, who was listed under a Castlegate address, did not attend the court hearing, but the probation service believes she may instead reside at another address in Hamilton Road.

Consequently, magistrates adjourned the case until October 13 so that a summons could be sent to the alternative address.
