Magpies stop woman giving details to police

JENNY-Anne Nichols appeared in the Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday for contravening a requirement of police.

Nichols had seven days to provide her particulars to the Gladstone Police Station and failed to do so by September 18.

Nichols told the court she had called the bus service on September 18 to know what time to get a bus from Glen Eden to Gladstone Central.

"I did go up there and wait for the bus but it didn't come. I even called them again," she said.

"I started to walk but I was attacked by magpies so I walked home hoping to get a lift from someone."

Nichols could not find a lift and provided her particulars to the police station the following day.

Magistrate Stuart Shearer told the court the reality was that Nichols had seven days to provide her particulars and should not have left it until the last day.
