Shoplifter Tracey dozes off in court

Career criminal Tracey Patterson will be sentenced next month for a shoplifting spree at a Boots pharmacy in the city last October.

Amazingly the 21-year-old sponger who lives in a flat at Divis Tower fell asleep in the public gallery during a court appearance on Thursday.

When she eventually regained her senses she pleaded guilty to stealing £128 worth of perfume from the Boots store.

Patterson's conviction is the latest in a long line of run-ins with the law.
