Ms Skingsly has been remanded in custody ahead of a hearing on 30 July.

Police have appealed for information from people who were in or passing the pub, which is on the B1166 Common Drove near the River Welland, at about 20:00 BST on Sunday.

Officers said they are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw a woman wearing a black skirt and a black and white vest top, or the black Peugeot 307.
