A WOMAN has been banned from a pub in Cheshire West after she assaulted two people.

Claire Bell, of Verdin Street, Northwich, carried out the double assault on September 24 last year.

The 41-year-old was appearing at Chester Magistrates Court on Wednesday, April 20.

She was charged with two counts of assault against two other women, one of which resulted in her occasioning actual bodily harm.

Bell pleaded guilty to both offences on March 11 and the matter was adjourned to allow the probation service to complete a pre-sentence report.

Magistrates handed Bell a two-year restraining order against both of her victims and as part of that is barred from entering The Lodge on Winnington Lane.

Bell will also be electronically tagged for the next 10 months, meaning she will have to adhere to a nightly curfew between the hours of 7pm-7am.

She must also complete 20 days of rehabilitation and was ordered to pay £150 and £50 in compensation payments to each of the women.
