    • A shop thief was caught stealing booze while she waited for her partner to appear in the dock at the magistrates' court next door.
      Denise Reid decided she needed alcohol as she waited for her boyfriend's case to be called on, so popped over to a nearby Lidl.
      The 46-year-old picked out a bottle of wine and cider, valued at £6.84, but was detained leaving the store, in Bedlington, without paying.
      Reid was due to appear at the same court - South East Northumberland Magsitrates' Court - on Thursday to face one count of shop theft but failed to show.
      Instead, the case was proved in her absence and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
      James Long, prosecuting, read from a transcript of Reid's police interview after her arrest on December 2 last year.

      When I used to knock around Bedlington with a few mates from Westridge we knew how to amuse ourselves. Knowing how to hockle well was a talent worth cultivating. Harry Wilson was the undisputed master. He knew how to howk up a pellet of phlegm, shape it to give it just the right heft and aerodynamics and propel it over an amazingly long distance with impressive accuracy. Once lying around on the grass at the tennis courts behind Holymount Square I saw him, from a sitting position, his back against the high chain link fence around the tennis courts, unleash a spectacular hockle straight up into the air and backwards over the fence onto the tennis court. We knew how to have a good time.
