Teenager Abigail Long must pay a total of £150 after failing to move along when she became abusive on a night out in Ipswich.

Long, of Peppercorn Way, Ipswich, pleaded guilty before the town’s magistrates to failing to comply with a direction excluding a person from an area.

The offence occurred in the area of Dog’s Head Street on July 17. Prosecutor Lesla Small said it was just after midnight when Long, 19, was refused entry to Revolution nightspot because she had no identification on her.

She became abusive to staff and police got involved. Long was escorted away from the area, but was still being abusive. She was given a Section 35 notice to leave the area.

Initially she complied and walked away. However, magistrates were told Long returned to Dog’s Head Street at around 1am. She was approached by the same officer who gave her the instruction and was abusive when asked why she had returned.

She was fined £75 and ordered to pay costs of £45 along with a £30 victim surcharge.
