A 50-year-old woman says she cannot remember committing a public order offence in a Grantham nightclub, but pleaded guilty to the charge to magistrates on Monday.

Pamela Gascoigne admitted threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour on February 2 inside Faces on Westgate, but defending herself in court said that she had taken too many painkillers and couldn’t remember the incident .

Prosecutor Marie Stace said that it was a 1.42am that Gascoigne was asked to leave the premises, but instead she remained by the entrance shouting and swearing. Eventually the police were called and she was arrested.

Miss Stace also highlighted that with this offence Gascoigne had breached a six month conditional discharge imposed on September 8 for another public order matter.

For both offences Gascoigne was fined a total of £75, and ordered to pay £85 prosecution costs and £20 victim surcharge.
