A woman has been made the subject of a community order after failing to provide a specimen at Workington Police Station when required to do so.

Tanya Marshall, 35, was required to provide the sample after having been suspected of driving a vehicle or been required to provide a specimen or specimens of breath for analysis.

Marshall, of Fir Park, Durham, appeared at Workington’s magistrates’ court on Monday where she pleaded guilty to the charge.

She was subsequently made subject of a community order.

The order requires her to comply with a six-week curfew between the hours of 7pm and 7am daily.

Marshall has also been disqualified from holding or obtaining a licence for 17 months.

The disqualification will be reduced by 17 weeks if Marshall completes an approved course by the September 12 next year.

As well as this, Marshall was ordered to pay £95 to victim services and £85 costs to the Crown Prosecution Service.

Her guilty plea was taken into consideration when imposing the sentence.
