Parents Bailed After Being Found Drunk In Cemetery

Tuesday October 22 2013

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

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.

Absolutely disgusting. He has already been done for it once, then to go and do it again. Even a family member said they do it all the time. They don't deserve those kids, where are social services in all this? Poor kids!

I'm sick of hearing about kids being neglected, mistreated and being raised by 'parents' who would probably treat a dog better! sounds like these poor kids would be safer and better looked after if they were placed with foster carers! I hope that social services are involved, and that the 'parents' are locked up. Totally outrageous and not acceptable. What utter skip rats!!

Scumbags don't deserve kids!!! Hope to god social services do the right thing and put the kids where they will have a better life if not shamefull thing is it'll be a simple case of "monkey see, monkey do!!" Through no fault of these kids they'll probably end up messed up!!!!!! Hate folk like these wastes of breath!!!!

Reply Posted by Jase on Tuesday October 22 2013 at 10:20
Let's just hope this dosn't end up as yet another National news story after something horrible happens to those children. If it does, I am sure it will just be another case of 'we need to learn lessons from what has happened here'.

... and to think my taxes pay for these Cretins to exist when there are genuinely ill people struggling to survive and cannot get a penny benefit. Take the kids off them, give them a crate of vodka, bag of crack - lock them in a room - sorted, I pay enough to keep these morons on the street don't want to pay for them to be locked up as well.

I am absolutely mortified that any services in this land can justify these poor innocent children bein left in the care of these two absolute disgraces!! WTF???? seriously get a grip take them kiddies away (and I don't say that lightly) but it is for their own good they are going to be scared for life at least now they have a fighting chance if given to a family who will love care and nuture them of growing up as rounded human beings and members of society if they are left with these morons that hope has all but gone for them the poor mights x

Now this family needs help,more so the kids. Let's hope the social services do the right thing,and get involved if they,r not already before some catastrophe happens .
It's a an obvious case for the kids to be removed. As for the parents,they can then sort themselves out before being given the children back. Those poor children. The authorities have the power,they must use it. I dare bet things like this will escalate,as all the boundary's of what is acceptable and what's not seem to be slipping away. From posts on here alone, it seems drink,drugs,and swearing are getting more and more acceptable. Future generations will get worse and worse. Its time we all,as adults looked at ourselves and try to do the right things,and stop being so selfish and stop making feeble excuses. Parents owe it to their kids.

Get these children away from these idiots asap before something tragic happens.

What Barnsley Bob. No time for Grasser's at the expense of CHILDREN SUFFERING.?? For gods sake. OK a broken family,but they are broken already and god only knows what these children are going through. Shameful. I would grass today, I don't care about your principles.

well said sid,i would grass and gladly put my name forward as a grass in this case,if it meant the children were going to be safe,because no child sould have to suffer a life like this,,get real ,barnsley bob and do one..

Well. I thoroughly expected this report to be full of angry posts.

Reply Posted by Swifty on Tuesday October 22 2013 at 20:07
Just because two people have a child does not mean them parents have a 100% hold on the children. When you become a parent either as two or as a single parent we have a obligation to car protect and raise these children with respect etc.

Once as a parent these things fail or circumstances change where in this case both parents are not for for purpose. Then as a society in 2013 you would clearly expect the appropriate body Social Services to take over.

Then they can work with the Parents and Children to move forward with support package etc.

Sadly as I write this post no one in Society and the Social Services can be

Sorry pressed wrong button. should. Read no one in Society and Social Services at this present moment in time can say these children are not sat in the park watching there parents drinking Alleged drugs etc.

These children deserve better they are tomorrow's generation.

your the kinda people that think they are so perfect because you pay your taxes and let everybody on wab know it.your so perfect in every way,you never make mistakes.your the kind that report their mothers given half a chance and feel proud of yourselves.i hope somebody grasses you up but they wont because you never do anything wrong do you?.

Reply Posted by sid on Tuesday October 22 2013 at 21:22
Barnsley Bob, that's just daft. The biggest mistake anyone could do is to turn a blind eye to child cruelty. Yes I would be proud to grass up a couple who abuse their children. Why on earth are you sticking up for them.? Surely you can't agree with what they are putting their kids through? Its not just tax payers that would grass them up,that's a silly comment, hopefully its any human being.

Barnsley bob if you don't no the difference between grassing and trying to make quite sure two children are made safe then as I think you must walk about with your head up your ars just to see how muchshit you've still got left in it.by the way people you know that social services only get involved when it's too late

Reply Posted by Louise on Wednesday October 23 2013 at 09:24
Barnsley bob..... Do you really think the actions of these parents is reasonable? Without the comments about grassing etc ? Do you really think that these people are acting in the best interests of their children ????

Reply Posted by nic on Wednesday October 23 2013 at 09:36
It's sickening to read stories like this one , those poor children deserve better in life than been dragged around and neglected by their so called parents !! If he has been done before why on earth haven't the child protection services taken them 2 innocent kid's away already ? It will sadly be another case of social services going in with their blinkers on .... social services and child protection team's should be doing everything they can to safeguard these children from the two people who should be providing a safe loving environment

Reply Posted by HERO on Wednesday October 23 2013 at 09:42
Whats up barnsley bob have you got your own grievance against social services cos they took your kids off you??We cannot turn a blind eye to child neglect FACT.Co when a child does die you would be the first to call the social services for not doing there job properly!!!!

Reply Posted by Kathleen on Wednesday October 23 2013 at 09:59
If the family knew they do it all the time. Why don't they intervene and take the children. Better than the social workers. This kind of thing happens more than society knows. These children have no start in life. All they have probably only seen drunken lolloping adults who think more about their own wants. It goes beyond just been found in a cemetery drunk. These children need more much more than just to be taken from the parents and dumped in the hands of social workers to be made frightened and eventually hating society for palming them off. Away from the family they know. We have all experienced the term "better the devil you know". If only there was a way to get the parents sober and teach them. Then again birching them would make them sober and a threat to do it over and over till they got it right would work too. For the children!!

im a barnsley person,i was born and brought up in barnsley and im ashamed to be from barnsley.barnsley is a town like no other,the grassers on here are proof of that,if they are bragging about tax payers,they are complaining about the unemployed or the travellers and they cant wait to grass to the dole or social services given the opportunity.friendly people in barnsley,thats a joke.barnsley men are the most henpecked creatures it will your misfortune to meet so its no surprise they come on wab complaining every chance they get and its no surprise they grass on people as its most likely the only pleasure they get in their sad miserable lives.

I often go to the cemetary in Barnsley to tend my grandparents grave and if you go early evening you can sometimes see people drinking and they will have toddlers and babies in pushchairs with them. On one occasion I called into the police station and reported it. Little children should not be left in the care of alcoholics and drug addicts as we have seen all too regularly this ends very badly

Reply Posted by k on Wednesday October 23 2013 at 14:49
Barnsley Bob you sum up everything that is wrong with our society.
Are you saying we should turn a blind eye when innocent children are in harms way - it is our duty as humans to look out for one another.
You condemn people who as you put it are "grassers", so are you suggesting we turn a blind eye and let children suffer.
Your comments make you sound like a complete moron, there is nothing shameful in earning a living and paying your taxes, if we didn't, there would be no money to fund benefits for the people who refuse to pay their taxes and then what kind of a mess would you be in. So before you go shouting your mouth off have a proper think as to who pays for your lifestyle.
I do not claim to be perfect but I work hard, respect others and try and set a good example for my children - how is that in any way wrong.
I think you need to take a long hard look at yourself and wonder where all your anger comes from - disrespect of yourself perhaps, are you proud when you look in the mirror because if you were, you would not feel the need to say the moronic things that you do.
