Booze sorry now?

A booze-loving liar who narrowly escaped jail after falsely claiming to be the victim of a sectarian assault.

Joanna Love told cops she was beaten up in Castlederg, Co Tyrone, last year by a republican gang.

She even posed for pictures showing off a bruised face — an injury she said was inflicted during the attack.

But the chubby 24-year-old's web of lies unravelled last week when she appeared in court in Omagh and admitted wasting police time. Love was handed a four-month jail sentence suspended for one year.
