A MOTHER at the centre of a love-tug case this year has appeared in court.
Eileen Dawkins, 23, of Primrose Hill, was at the heart of a nationwide search in February, when she vanished with her two young children and young sister-in-law.
Now, she has pleaded guilty to racially aggravated assault and public order offences.
Dawkins, of Greenwood Street, was given a community rehabilitation order by Calderdale magistrates in Halifax.
The court was told that Dawkins was arrested by police after a dispute involving her husband, who was on a bus.
She had tried to stop him and a dispute began. It got worse when police arrived.
The court was told Dawkins spat, kicked and swore at police officers and used racial insults.
Mr Andrew Sugden, for Dawkins, said there had been many problems over the past six months.
She had gone missing with the children after her husband returned to Jamaica. She had also been in a dispute with social services officials over the children.
She had taken the children, fearing they would be taken from her.
Dawkins has since given birth to another child and is battling for custody of her children.
