A woman has been fined after she admitted being drunk and disorderly in Lynn’s bus station last month.

Tracey Johnson, 52, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to the charge when she appeared in court today.

Fergus Harold, prosecuting, said the incident had happened in the interchange on February 16, at a time when the site was busy with families because of the half-term holiday.

He said Johnson was detained after verbally abusing police when they approached her.

Johnson, who represented herself in court, said she was “really, really sorry” for her actions on the day.

She said she had not drunk any alcohol since the incident and was trying to secure hostel accommodation.

She said: “I’ve been sofa surfing for months and ears and I can’t do it anymore.”

Johnson was fined £80 and told to pay £20 costs, plus a £30 victim surcharge.
