    Two best friends who carried out a "disgraceful" attack on a woman have avoided jail following on from an online argument.

    Laura Jones, 33, and Emily Wright, 29, had shown up to their victims home and lobbed eggs at her, pelting the Stoke-on-Trent home in the early hours of the morning.

    Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court has since heard that Wright stamped on the victim's legs, while Jones, who is now heavily pregnant, struck the woman, kneed her in the head and attempted to pour vinegar in her eyes.

    Wright returned to the address later in the day and grabbed the woman's hair, spat in her face and pulled her to the floor, StokeonTrentLive reports.

    Both mums have since been handed restraining orders for their horrid attack which took place in June 2020, with prosecutor Elizabeth Powers recalling the attack on the homeowner.

    Prosecutor Powers said: "Ms Wright was holding a box of eggs and Jones a bottle of vinegar. Ms Wright started to throw eggs towards her. The victim was grabbed by her hair which was twisted and she was pulled to the ground.

    "Ms Jones kneed her in the head while Ms Wright stamped on her legs. Ms Jones also attempted to pour the bottle of vinegar into her eyes. The pair threatened to 'smash your house up' and went into the front room and threw a picture frame across the room."

    A victim impact statement read out to the court detailed the "constant fear" the once "extroverted" woman now feels.

    Judge Julian Taylor, who handed both Jones and Wright 12-month community orders and restraining orders, said the "unpleasant incident" had made "fools" of the pair.

    Judge Taylor said: "You are two young women in crown court to be sentenced on affray. I am surprised there were not more injuries. It is disgraceful.

    "There were no previous convictions and the guidelines say the custody threshold is not met. If you do not cooperate with your community orders then you will go to prison. If you breach your probation you will come back here.

    "You two should count yourselves lucky that you are being given a chance. It is regrettable to see women in such a disappointing episode."
