Blackburn pub brawlers caught on CCTV
10:40am Friday 18th October 2013 in News
A FIGHT between two women outside a Blackburn pub was caught on CCTV.
Blackburn magistrates heard it wasn’t clear who had started the fisticuffs and both women had been charged with using threatening behaviour.
But while one of them pleaded guilty the other denied the offence, Sharon Elaine Wilcock, 39, of Ansdell Terrace, Blackburn, pleaded guilty and was given a conditional discharge for 18 months and ordered to pay £100 costs.
Jonathan Taylor, defending, said his client maintained she was struck first but didn’t want to drag matters out.
“The other lady is pleading not guilty and that is her prerogative,” said Mr Taylor. “My client accepts that she shouldn’t have been involved and should have walked away.”
