A shoplifting case against an alcoholic woman from Bulwell has been scrapped after the court heard she was suffering from dementia.

Julie Gregory (49), of Colston Road, pleaded guilty to three charges of stealing food and alcohol from the Morrisons and Tesco Extra superstores in Bulwell town centre. She was subsequently banned from both stores.

An initial hearing at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court was told that Gregory had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and was receiving treatment at Highbury Hospital in Bulwell.
