She undid the mooring ropes in the early hours and drifted up a river on the tide, bashing into other boats “like a pinball machine”.
Whelan taunted police, shouting: “What are you going to do now?” and “I believe this is out of your jurisdiction!”
If she lived in the US, this would qualify her for her own reality tv show!
