MAGISTRATES agreed to scrap a woman's electronic curfew order this week, after hearing she had no electricity supply at her Fordham home.

Donna Bush was given the tagging order last month, because she had admitted stealing a bottle of wine and eight cans of lager from the Co-op store at Littleport.

"Her property is not appropriate for a curfew order," Maxine Bailey from the probation service explained to Ely magistrates on Thursday.

Bush, 33, of Newport Avenue, Fordham, was also in court to be sentenced for an offence of using disorderly behaviour on June 11.

The previous week, the court heard how Bush and her partner Carl Scarrow had horrified shoppers at the Waitrose store when they used foul language during a row that had started in the alcohol section.

Bush was given a new 18-month supervision order, which will help address her problems with drink and drugs.
