Police were forced to pull a boozy Filey woman’s dead dog from under the wheels of her mobility scooter after the pet tragically got trapped, a court heard.

Officers were called to the Pasture Crescent home of disabled Ashley Heaton at 4am on July 29 last year, after the Jack Russell terrier had got “tangled up” 
under the motorised vehicle.

Last Thursday Scarborough magistrates heard how Heaton had fallen into a drunken stupor after drinking eight cans of lager that night, and that, since then, her life had been “made hell”.
