A 76-year-old grandmother has successfully overturned her fine after she was arrested for taking a prayer walk near an abortion facility.

Rosa Lalor, from Liverpool, went for a walk during the Covid lockdown in February 2021, as she was lawfully entitled to do.

While she walked, she was praying silently to herself, and wore a face mask even though that was not legally required.

A police officer approached her and asked why she was outdoors. She answered that she was ‘walking and praying’.
