A foul-mouthed woman was remanded into custody after she racially-abused a police officer.

Ismail admitted using racially-aggravated threatening behaviour and breaching a suspended prison sentence.

Katie Steiner, defending, said Ismail is not a racist person.

District Judge Naomi Redhouse sentenced Ismail to a £100 fine or one-day in custody which was deemed served while she was on remand.

She was also given ten additional rehabilitation requirement days towards her suspended prison sentence.
