A WOMAN flashed at three teenagers while she was drunk.

Police were called after Karen Webb, 52, started causing a disturbance.

It emerged she pushed one of the youngsters, spat at another and then pushed over a motorbike causing £100 worth of damage to the wing mirror.

Afterwards, Webb exposed herself to the group. in Jaywick.

During a hearing at Colchester Magistrates’ Court, Ashley Petchey, prosecuting, said: “She pulled down her trousers and her underwear and exposed her bottom and other private parts.

“Afterwards she removed her top and also exposed her breasts.”

Webb, of Standard Avenue, Jaywick, admitted two counts of assault, one of criminal damage and another of exposure during the hearing.

The incident took place on October 1. James O’Toole, mitigating, said Webb was incredibly sorry for what she had done and was relying on alcohol after the death of her son.

He said: “I would like to start by offering an unequivocal apology.

“She feels disappointed in herself and demonstrates her remorse with her early guilty plea.

“She has a very vague recollection of what happened on that day and alcohol has been an issue in her life for a number of years.

“She was very proud of her son and went to university in Plymouth to study bio-medicine.

“Her son dying was a terrible blow for her.

“She is being medicated for anxiety and depression and was mixing the tablets with alcohol which she obviously should not have done.

“Since this happened she has been on a detoxification programme.”

Webb was given a 12-month community order in June with 30 rehabilitation activity requirement days after admitting to an assault.

A Probation Service report said she had been co-operating perfectly so far and was getting help for her alcohol dependence.

Magistrates decided to revoke the old order and create a fresh one, which increased the number of rehabilitation requirement days to 40.

She was also ordered to pay compensation of £200 which will be split between the three victims.

They decided she did not have to pay courts costs or a victim surcharge.
