AN ATTACKER has been up before the magistrates after assaulting emergency workers in a Hereford incident.

Charlotte Horsfall was found guilty of two counts of assaulting an emergency worker by beating when she appeared before magistrates in Hereford in September.

She had previously entered not guilty pleas to both charges at an earlier hearing.


The court heard from prosecutor Paul John that the 38-year-old had assaulted two police constables who were acting in the course of their duties in Hereford between October 1 and 2 last year.

Horsfall, of Warncombe Link, Hereford, was fined £100 for each offence and ordered to pay compensation of £50 to one of the officers, with magistrates saying that the fine had been uplifted as the offences were against emergency workers.

She was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £400 and an £80 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
