A teenage daughter attacked her mother after a drinking session.

Raven Gwilliam bit, headbutted, punched and spat at her mum when she tried to take a fire extinguisher from her.

She had also attacked two people in the street, elbowing a man in the chest and hitting a woman with a skateboard, Blackpool Magistrates’ Court was told.

Gwilliam, 18, a pet shop worker, of Livingston Road, Blackpool, admitted three offences of assault and damaging a pair of spectacles.

Blackpool magistrates sentenced her to 18 months court supervision, with 40 days rehabilitation, fined £50 with £50 costs and ordered to pay compensation of £70 to the man and £50 to the woman she attacked in the street.

Alison Quanbrough, prosecuting, said Gwilliam was on Church Street, Blackpool, on March 26, when she elbowed a 30-year-old man in the chest, pulled off his glasses and twisted them until they broke.

She then pushed a 16-year-old boy off his skateboard and hit a 57-year-old woman on the arm with it.

She told police she had been 10 out of 10 on the drunkenness scale, having had 10 pints of strong lager, and could not remember anything.

She got locked out of her flat on April 2 and her mother was told her daughter had been throwing a fire extinguisher about trying to get in.

Gwilliam’s mother tried to take the extinguisher off her, but she was punched in the face, bitten on the hand, headbutted and spat at twice by her daughter. Again Gwilliam told police she had been drinking excessively.

Jessica Partington, defending, told magistrates Gwilliam said she did not now drink
