A PREGNANT woman has admitted a horrific bottle attack on another female.

Kayleigh Liddell, 28, pleaded guilty to a charge of assault to injury yesterday and using the bottle as an offensive weapon during the incident in Mayfield Drive, Armadale in November last year.

Liddell, of Plessey Terrace, Bathgate, was originally accused of repeatedly striking Sharon Brodie on the head to her severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

Her lawyer Andy Aitken told Livingston Sheriff Court that she was pleading to a reduced charge of a single strike which had caused injury but not significant scars.

Sheriff Peter Hammond called for background reports and an assessment of Liddell’s suitability for electronic tagging under a curfew and deferred sentence until December 8.
