A BOOZED-UP British mum, whose kids were taken into care before a flight from Gibraltar, has been fined £450.

She and her husband had been charged with being intoxicated while in charge of children, after they were found drunk in Gibraltar International Airport last week.

Police arrived at the transport hub after the woman, 53, fell over in the departures lounge.

But charges against the man, 54, were dropped after the pair appeared in Magistrates Court on Friday.

But the wife was handed a £250 fine after she pleaded to her intoxication charge and another fine of £200 for damage to property.

Police officers had removed the children from the tanked-up couple and transferred them to social services.

However, the parents and their children have subsequently been allowed to return to the UK.
