A COUPLE have been bailed after being found drunk in a cemetery with their two kids.

Andrew Marshall, 40, and Kim Louise Delaney, 36, were aggressive towards the officers who approached them in Barnsley Cemetery, said Jayne Ormrod, prosecuting.

Mrs Ormrod said: "The children were stressed and the couple were unsteady on their feet, slurring their words and smelled of drink.

"A family member said later that the couple bring it on themselves and do it all the time."

Alan Greaves, defending, said he would put the couple's side of the story later.

Marshall and Delaney, both of Ash Grove, Kendray, admitted being drunk in charge of two children and being drunk and disorderly. Marshall also admitted breaching a conditional discharge imposed in February for being drunk in charge of a child.

Their case was adjourned until November 7 for a pre-sentence report and they were granted unconditional bail.
