A woman who fled court minutes before she was due to be sentenced for urinating on a Blackpool war memorial is being sought by Lancashire Police.

Wendy Lewis was jeered by veterans as she arrived at Blackpool Magistrate's Court on Friday for sentencing.

The 32-year-old, from Blackpool, had been caught on CCTV urinating on the memorial on 7 May, before performing a sex act on a man in public.

Lancashire Police confirmed that a warrant is being issued for her arrest.

Covering her head with a hood, Lewis swore at former soldiers as she arrived at court on Friday.

The veterans had gathered to form what they described as a "Guard of dishonour" and called out "disgusting" at her as she passed.

Lewis was last seen running down the courthouse steps and away into the town.

She had been found guilty of outraging public decency at an earlier hearing.
