Britain’s drunkest woman

Shoplifting mother downs 28 pints a day!

Dawn Marsden, 31, drinks so much she should be dead, experts said.

She was wrecked as she appeared on a theft charge and had to ask reporters later what her sentence was.
Jobless Marsden spends all day drinking cheap lager at home in Hartlepool, Teesside, and steals to fund her habit. The charge related to ten packs of bacon stolen from a Co-op and sold for £1 each.

Her solicitor John Relton told the town’s magistrates: “You may have noticed my client has a drink problem. She will drink up to 16 litres a day. She has a long-standing appetite for alcohol.”
