Mum who fell into River Hull jailed for attacking her rescuers
A MOTHER who caused panic when she fell into the River Hull has been jailed for attacking the emergency services staff who saved her life.
Tammer Louise Naser fell into the river after trying to climb ropes alongside the Arctic Corsair ship.
Paramedics, firefighters and police scrambled to her aid but, as she was pulled from the river, Naser began trying to fight them.
Naser, who was previously evicted from her Bransholme house for throwing rowdy parties with her son, has now been jailed for 24 weeks.

Hull Magistrates' Court heard Naser, 36, put the lives of the emergency services at risk as they battled to rescue her from the "hazardous" situation.
Mark Thompson, group manager for Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, said: "I cannot stress enough that mud is as dangerous as water.
"It can have a suction effect, making rescues difficult to carry out.
"Mud rescues are hazardous and require specialist equipment and specially trained officers in mud and water rescue."
But instead of thanking them for their efforts, Naser showered them with abuse.
When she was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary, she continued to threaten nurses.
The incident happened on June 1 during the morning rush-hour and caused long delays for city commuters.
The alarm was raised at about 8.30am and specially trained firefighters attended the scene with specialist equipment for mud rescues, along with police and ambulance crews.
Naser had been seen to climb the ropes from the riverside to the Arctic Corsair trawler before falling into the river.
After risking their lives to save her, Naser, of St Peter Street, east Hull, then became abusive towards all three emergency services.
Naser pleaded guilty to breaching her Asbo.
District Judge Fred Rutherford sentenced Naser to 24 weeks in prison.
He described the offence as "very serious" and told her she had been given many chances but it was her third Asbo breach and it was "persistent behaviour".
Naser and her son, Corey, 17, were given two-year Asbos in February last year for all-night parties, fights and vandalism at their former flat in Gatwick House, Bransholme.
Since being handed the Asbo, she has been charged with a further three antisocial acts, including fighting, swearing and attacking police officers and being abusive and urinating in a public place.
The Asbo bans her from causing harassment, alarm or distress, or encouraging others to do so, anywhere in Hull.
If she breaches the order, she could face a maximum five-year prison sentence.
