A woman smashed a plate in the face of a chip shop owner and left her with a bloody nose following a row over an order. Wendy Mountford struck Shirley Hollies with the crockery, causing it to break, after throwing chips and mushy peas at her back.
She then proceeded to pull her hair during the incident at her home in Well Street, Biddulph.
