A drunken woman smashed a window at a South Tyneside mosque.

Police were called to Baring Street in South Shields after Sarah Riley was seen on CCTV running amok at 5.30am. Officers told the 22-year-old to go home, but later found a window smashed at the Baithul Mamur Jame Masjid Mosque. When arrested, she said she couldn’t remember what had happened.

Riley, of Ebor Street, South Shields, pleaded guilty to criminal damage at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court. Magistrates gave her a six-month conditional discharge and ordered her to pay £85 costs and £50 compensation.
