Angela Hill, aged 32, of New Beacon Road, and Nichola Hill, aged 34, of Tennyson Avenue, both admitted committing common assault at St Catherine’s Road outside Baileys hairdressers.

Prosecutor Marie Stace detailed how on December 13 the two women went to the hairdressers where the victim worksand demanded of the other staff and manager to see her, but were told she was unavailable, to which one said: “I’ll be back on the hour every f***ing hour.”

They continued to shout and swearand began throwing stones and banging at the window, before walking off. The victim then went outside and was called a ‘slag’. while she was also accused of making threats to a member of the Hills’ family.

Nichola was then said to have grabbed the victim by her hair who fell to her knees and described being beaten on her upper body and head.

The victim suffered pain to the back of her head, had hair pulled out, while her glasses were also smashed and a bracelet was broken.

The two women said they had acted in self-defence, although their full defence won’t be heard by the court until after a pre-sentence report is prepared. They are due back in court for sentencing on March 16, with both on conditional bail not to go within 25 metres of Baileys hairdressers or to contact the victim.
