A mum-of-three fell out with her friends during a party at her home and bit one of them.

Jay Barrington sank her teeth into the woman friend’s finger and wrist.

Barrington, 24, of Sycamore Drive, Wesham, pleaded guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm.

She was sentenced to six months supervision and ordered to pay £100 compensation with £85 costs plus £60 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said two women friends went round to Barrington’s home on the evening of April 5.

Barrington said there was a row and one of the women punched her in the face.

The two women guests went to leave and Barrington said money had been taken from her purse for their taxi.

One of the women grabbed Barrington by the upper arms and she bit her.

Malcolm Cartwright, defending, said Barrington, who had no previous convictions, had shared a three-litre bottle of cider with her friends.

When Barrington was grabbed by the other woman she spontaneously responded by biting her.
