A woman has been banned from bars in a west Cumbrian Pubwatch scheme after carrying out an attack while under the influence.
Emma Allan, 27, launched the assault on another woman at Egremont’s Wheatsheaf pub on September 15 last year.
Allan, of Greenmoor Road, Egremont, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today, where she admitted assault causing actual bodily harm.
Her sentence included being banned from all licensed premises in the Egremont Pubwatch scheme for a year.
Sergeant Mitchell Franks, licensing officer for west Cumbria, spoke after the sentencing, saying he was pleased with the ban.
He said: “This attack was conducted while under the influence of alcohol in a licensed establishment.
“It is essential that we safeguard venues and the people in them from such acts of violence.
“Those who go into licensed premises and commit acts of violence can expect that future opportunities to drink and be entertained in such premises will be severely curtailed.
“This sends a strong message out to all who wish to act in a manner that brings violence and disorder into licensed establishments: You will be prosecuted and you will be banned.”
Allan was also handed a 12-month jail term, suspended for two years.
She must complete 120 hours’ unpaid work.
