A WOMAN has been convicted for being drunk and disorderly at a railway station across the border.

Chantelle Rowe, 27, of Poplar Mount, in Bramley pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place at Manchester Magistrates' Court last Friday.

The 27-year-old was caught being drunk and disorderly at Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station on February 7 this year, according to court records.

The case was brought to court by British Transport Police (BTP).

The law states: "Any person who in any public place is guilty, while drunk, of disorderly behaviour may be arrested without warrant by any person."

Rowe was handed a 12-month conditional discharge for the crime - meaning there is no further action taken but the perpetrator still gets a criminal record and if she commits a crime in that year period she can be sentenced for the original offence and the new one.

She was also ordered to pay £80 in costs.
