Woman strangle herself in the courtroom

A Skelmersdale woman who appeared in court to admit theft charges tried to strangle herself moments after a judge refused her bail.

Kerry Hayes, who had appeared at Preston Crown Court with an arm in a sling, loosened the dressing and then wrapped it around her neck in an apparent attempt to use it as a ligature.

She leapt on to a chair in the corner of the dock before she was overpowered by a dock officer and a woman police officer who rushed over from the public gallery.
