A WOMAN has admitted assaulting a police officer and refusing to take a breath test.

Margaret Squibb, of Downland Drive, Hove, assaulted PC Paul Barrett at Portsmouth Central police station in Winston Churchill Avenue.

The 51-year-old also failed to provide a breath specimen for analysis on the same day.

Squibb was banned from driving for a year and told to pay £50 compensation by Portsmouth magistrates. She was also given a community order stating she must attend four alcohol counselling sessions in the next six months.
